Frantic Assembly and State Theatre Company South Australia have announced full casting for their critically acclaimed Things I Know To Be True, which returns to delight audiences in the UK from 27 September 2017.
Original UK cast members, Matthew Barker and Kirsty Oswald, return to reprise their roles as Mark and Rosie respectively. Joining them in the company will be Cate Hamer as Fran, Seline Hizli as Pip, John McArdle as Bob and Arthur Wilson as Ben.
Andrew Bovell’s new play will tour to Oxford Playhouse, The Lowry, Salford Quays, Leicester Curve, Mercury Theatre, Colchester, York Theatre Royal, Chester Storyhouse, Southampton Nuffield, Poole Lighthouse and London’s Lyric Hammersmith.
As beautifully touching as it is funny and bold, Things I Know To Be True tells the story of a family and marriage through the eyes of four grown siblings struggling to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and expectations.
Parents Bob and Fran have worked their fingers to the bone and with their four children grown and ready to fly the nest it might be time to relax and enjoy the roses. But the changing seasons bring home some shattering truths.
Andrew Bovell said:
“The only reason to write a play is for it to reach an audience and for it to mean something to them when it does. I’m thrilled that UK audiences will have another chance to see this wonderful production.”
Featuring Frantic Assembly’s celebrated physicality, and co-directed by Frantic Assembly’s Tony and Olivier Award nominated Artistic Director Scott Graham and State Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Geordie Brookman, Things I Know To Be True is a complex and intense study of the mechanics of a family that is both poetic and brutally frank.
