Things I Know To Be True


“Bovell’s hypnotic, poetic use of language… (is) piercingly beautiful” Arts Hub

The Price family appears to be living the Australian dream – a loving household, a quarter acre block where time is measured by the seasonal changes in working class patriarch Bob’s beloved roses. The four kids have grown up and spread their wings, with only the youngest, Rosie, still at home. As the seasons turn, their story becomes darker and more difficult. But with complexity comes richness, resolution and meaning.

Epic in scope while deeply human in focus, Things I Know To Be True tugs at your heart while asking big questions about what keeps us going.

A newly commissioned play from one of our greatest contemporary playwrights, Andrew Bovell, (The Secret River and Lantana) is cause enough for celebration – but add to that an international collaboration with the extraordinary Frantic Assembly, (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime) a brilliant cast including stage icon Paul Blackwell, the outstanding Nathan O’Keefe (Betrayal, The Importance of Being Earnest) and introducing rising star Tilda Cobham-Hervey, and you have the ingredients of something special.
