Things I Know To Be True (14 Feb 2024 - 17 Feb 2024)


This event has ended.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with NICK HERN BOOKS

by Andrew Bovell 

Directed by Damien O'Keeffe  


This is a funny, touching, and beautifully moving portrait of the mechanics of a family through the eyes of four siblings struggling to define themselves beyond the love and expectations of their parents.

Bob and Fran have worked hard all their lives to give their children the opportunities that they never had. Now, with the kids ready to make lives of their own, it is time to sit back and smell the roses. But as the seasons change, some shattering truths emerge, leaving us to wonder whether it is possible to love too much.

“And so to stop myself coming apart I make a list of all the things I know…I mean actually know for certain to be true and the frightening thing is…It’s a very short list.”

Warning: This play contains occasional robust language.
