Giant of the theatre and former Artistic Director of Belvoir Neil Armfield returns to direct Andrew Bovell's (Secret River, Lantana) Things I Know To Be True. A tough, loving play about family and Australian suburbia. The expectations that keep us trapped, the changing world beyond the fence, and the love that keeps us coming back.

The Prices aren’t from the top end of town, but they’re not battlers either – Fran and Bob have brought up four children and kept their sense of humour.

It should be time to stop and smell Bob’s precious roses.

But just when things should be slowing down, the complicated lives of all four offspring come crashing through the brick veneer walls.

With plate-dropping family revelations, love pangs, and the sweet pain of finding out the truth, Things I Know to be True is a beautifully crafted play from the ever-rewarding mind of Andrew Bovell.
