Things I Know To Be True

19 APRIL - 4 MAY | THEATRE WORKS
Things I Know To Be True

VENUE

by andrew bovell

Bob and Fran have worked for thirty years to build a home and to raise a family. Now that the children have grown and moved out, it’s their time to sit back and smell the roses. But as each season passes over the course of a year, each of their four children return to reveal a shattering truth that causes them to question the very foundations on which their family is built.

Featuring renowned screen and stage actor Belinda McClory, and directed by award-winning director Kitan Petkovski, THINGS I KNOW TO BE TRUE is about loving too much, not loving enough and trying to find the right place in between.

Soon to be seen as a six part TV series starring Nicole Kidman, Theatre Works is proud to bring this remarkable play to Melbourne audiences.
