Things I know to be true
An exciting international co-production between Frantic Assembly and State Theatre Company of South Australia.
Parents Bob and Fran have worked their fingers to the bone and with their four children grown and ready to fly the nest it might be time to relax and enjoy the roses. But the changing seasons bring home some shattering truths.
As beautifully touching as it is funny and bold, Things I Know To Be True written by Australian writer Andrew Bovell makes it’s UK premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith from 10th September until 1st October 2016 before embarking upon a UK tour which will include including Oxford, Warwick, Liverpool, Salford and Chichester
It tells the story of a family and marriage through the eyes of four grown siblings struggling to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and expectations. Things I Know To Be True is a complex and intense study of the mechanics of a family that is both poetic and brutally frank.
