Complex & Intense
Things I Know To Be True is as beautiful as it is poetic. Set in a suburban town, it follows the four adult Price siblings who are all at pivotal points in their lives; youngest sister Rosie, 19, has returned home after backpacking around Europe and is trying to get over heartbreak, Pip is living in an unhappy marriage and about to leave her husband, Ben is dabbling in things he shouldn't, and Mark is questioning his sexuality. Although each of their struggles are different, all four siblings are trying to keep their problems away from the judgemental eyes of their parents, Bob and Fran.
Excellent, humorous and heartbreaking, this is a portrait of a fractured, working-class family whose parents have pushed their personal aspirations onto their children. Who will crack first? And can both parents redefine their individual relationships with their children in order to recognize truth and manage tragedy?
Things I Know To Be True has received universal praise amongst theatre critics and is well worth the watch.
