Things I Know To Be True

by Andrew Bovell

As beautifully touching as it is funny and bold, Things I Know to be True is a powerful family drama from one of Australia’s master playwrights.

Funny, poignant, and heartbreaking, Andrew Bovell’s complex and intense portrait of the mechanics of a family, and a marriage, through the eyes of four siblings struggling to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and expectation places the magnifying lens squarely in our backyards.

Bob and Fran have worked hard to give their four children the opportunities they never had. Now, with their kids making lives of their own, it’s time to sit back and smell the roses. But the changing of the seasons reveals some shattering truths, leaving them asking is it possible to love too much?

Directed by the award-winning Leigh Oswin (Our Town, The Season at Sarsaparilla) and featuring Three River Theatre's trademark community theatre excellence, Things I Know To Be True is a complex, lyrical, witty and raw insight of the Australian family.
