This Much I Know

World Premiere



STARTS FEB 4, 2022


By Jonathan Spector
Directed by Josh Costello 



In light of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases due to the omicron variant, and in the interest of public safety and the safety of our audience, actors, and staff, Aurora Theatre Company will postpone our upcoming world premiere of Jonathan Spector’sThis Much I Know.
As excited as we were to begin rehearsals last week coming back from a restful holiday vacation, we quickly realized that the health and safety of our community needed to be our top priority. We are excited about this world premiere (our second from Eureka Day playwright Spector) and sharing it with you. To that end, we will produce This Much I Know live and in-person later this year in September 2022. Previews begin September 2nd.

The writer of Eureka Day returns to Aurora with an explosively theatrical interrogation of agency and culpability. Through his all-too-personal lectures on psychology, Lukesh attempts to unravel a mystery with his wife Natalya at the center. What happened to Natalya? The search for answers will launch us on a time-hopping fugue, weaving together the stories of Stalin’s daughter defecting to America, the son of a white supremacist growing to doubt the beliefs he was raised with, and the secret despair of becoming an accidental killer. How do we truly make decisions? How do we change our minds? And what does it mean to be complicit?

Jonathan Spector’s writing is “lively, alarming, and entertaining... [Spector is] observant and empathetic.”
— Ben Brantley, NEW YORK TIMES
