Things I Know To Be True

Date: 3 May 2019

Andrew Bovell’s play is framed by a phone-call.

It is after midnight and the phone is ringing. Bob knows that someone he loves is in trouble.

His inner thoughts are spoken by his four children. He fears picking up the phone, as he knows that something is wrong.

Fran and Bob are two doting parents whose lives are centered on their four children.

But when their children start facing complex life decisions, how will they cope?

Are Fran and Bob ready for their children to make their own decisions?

How will they manage their next chapter in life after the youngest child leaves the nest?

Over a span of one year, for each season, one child tells their own story.

Each season contains a crisis, a turning point and tough choices need to be made and the ramifications of those choices dealt with.

Neil Armfield directs an epic family drama featuring Miranda Daughtry, Tom Hobbs, Matt Levett, Tony Martin, Anna Lise Phillips and Helen Thomson.
