Terry is the director of a campaign for freedom of information and he has stumbled on a police cover-up that could bring great acclaim to his cause. But with the arrival of a new civil servant, Hilary, Terry's own secrets also slowly come to light. Now You Know is a satirical comedy based on the novel of the same name.
"Frayn's gently ironic comedy...picks up a cluster of ideas about secrecy, openness and the unpalatability of truth and dices them into a series of dilemmas." - Time Out
"There is some good, lively writing here...The play is funniest when it involves the human workings of Open, a crusading group where locked drawers and suppression of feeling are the norm." - London Times
Now You Know premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in July 1995 under the direction of Michael Blakemore.
