Bob and Fran Price have four adult children. Each child has his or her own unique struggles and secrets they try to keep hidden from their parents. Fran has a knack for knowing what is true in each of their lives, whether it is an unhappy marriage, heartbreak, confused sexuality or drug use. As the children try to redefine their lives separately from the hopes and dreams of their parents, what is real and genuine in the Price family falls apart under scrutiny and Bob and Fran must redefine their relationships with their children and with each other.
Funny, poignant, and heartbreaking, Things I Know to be True examines the dynamics of a family and how they understand truth in the face of tragedy.
This family drama, written by internationally acclaimed local Playwright Andrew Bovell, is tender, physical and deeply relatable.
Set in Adelaide, the plot follows the story and the many struggles of the Price Family – it will remind every audience member of their own family.
