Written, directed and acted in by three of the Drama Circle’s most experienced students, I Know You was centred on three interlocking stories concerning soon to be released inmates at a Sri Lankan prison. It featured some of Ananda’s most and least experienced actors.
Set against the backdrop of a Vesak lantern under construction, the play flashed between the past and present, exploring and subtly commenting on mature themes including ragging, alcoholism, infidelity, extortion, and drug abuse.
The play was one of four chosen to proceed into the finals of the Royal Drama Competition. In his sixth and last appearance at this competition, Lakshitha Edirisinghe won the Award for Best Supporting Actor.
