Things I Know To Be True

The critically acclaimed Things I know To Be True will return to audiences in the UK  from September until January.

The Frantic Assembly and State Theatre Company South Australia show will begin its tour at Oxford Playhouse where it will run from 27th to 30th September.

Synopsis: Things I Know To Be True

Things I know To Be True tells the story of a family and marriage through the eyes of four grown siblings who are struggling to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and expectations.

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.

Casting for Things I Know To Be True will be announced in due course.

Andrew Bovell, writer of the show, commented: “The only reason to write a play is for it to reach an audience and for it to mean something to them when it does. I’m thrilled that UK audiences will have another chance to see this wonderful production.”
