Theatreworks – Things I Know to be True

by | Mar 6, 2024

Bob and Fran have worked for thirty years to build a home and raise a family. Now that the children have grown and moved out, it’s their time to sit back and smell the roses. But as the seasons pass over the course of a year, each of their four children return to reveal a shattering truth that causes them to question the very foundations on which their family is built. Things I Know to be True is about loving too much, not loving enough, and trying to find the right place in between.

One of Australia’s most celebrated and revered playwrights, Andrew Bovell’s (Lantana, The Secret River, When the Rain Stops Falling) classic new play received rave reviews upon its premiere in Adelaide in 2016 (co presented by the State theatre Company of South Australia and Frantic Assembly) and subsequent tour of the UK, and will soon be adapted into a six-part miniseries starring Nicole Kidman.

Following the success of his recent productions of In The Club by Patricia Cornelius at Theatreworks and The Inheritance by Matthew Lopez at fortyfivedownstairs, Kitan Petkovski directs a stellar cast – renowned screen and stage actor Belinda McClory (This is Living, Malthouse), Ben Grant (Ex Machina’s Playing Cards: Hearts), Brigid Gallacher (In the Club), Tomáš Kantor (Twelfth Night, Bell Shakespeare), Joss McClelland (The Inheritance), and Eva Rees (Hour of the Wolf, Malthouse) – in what is sure to be another epic and unmissable production.
