“It wasn’t meant to be like this. I thought they’d be like us. But better than us. Better versions of us.”
Written by critically acclaimed Australian playwright, Andrew Bovell, Things I Know To Be True provides a 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 expectations. Bob and Fran Price have worked hard to give their four children the opportunities they never had. Now, with the kids ready to make lives of their own, it’s time to sit back and smell the roses. But the change of the seasons reveals some shattering truths, leaving us asking whether it’s possible to love too much.
Director António Carlos Andrade uses a blend of devised theatre, choreography, physical theatre, and a naturalistic approach to more traditional scripted rehearsals to create a unique piece that will take the audience through a deeply emotional journey, full of laughter and tears.
