Director Sarah Ferdinands writes:

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.

Incorporating Frantic Assembly’s celebrated style of physicality, 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.

Characters:

THE PRICE FAMILY 

BOB (M), 63, a retrenched auto factory worker

FRAN (F), 57, a senior nurse

THEIR CHILDREN

PIP (F), 34, an education department bureaucrat

MARK (M), 32, an IT specialist

BEN (M), 28, a financial services worker

ROSIE (F), 19, who doesn’t know who she is or what she wants to be yet

The play will be expressed using physicality, therefore actors should be reasonably fit and willing to work with their bodies as well as with the text.
