Things I Know to be True

Bob and Fran Price have loved each other for thirty years. They have built a home and raised four strong children. At the end of it all, they are left asking: Was it worth it? Who are we, now that the children have gone? 

Things I Know to be True is a funny and honest account of family life in the Australian suburbs. Over the course of one year, the four adult Price children struggle to establish their identities and deal with personal crises. 

This new classic play by Andrew Bovell ( Lantana, The Secret River, When the Rain Stops Falling) is about growing up and moving on, even if you’re not ready to.
