ABOUT Things I Know To Be True

Things I Know To Be True at the Lyric Hammersmith.

Frantic Assembly and State Theatre Company of South Australia present, Things I Know To Be True, a new play by Andrew Bovell.

Imogen Stubbs leads a stunning cast in this complex and intense study of family relationships that is both poetic and brutally frank.

This production is 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 runs from 11 January 2018 until 3 February 2018 at the 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.


The cast features Matthew Barker, Natalie Casey, Richard Mylan, Kirsty Oswald, Ewan Stewart and Imogen Stubbs.


Written by Andrew Bovell. Co-directed by Scott Graham and Geordie Brookman.
