“I thought they’d be like us. But better than us. That’s what we worked so hard for. Wasn’t it?”
Having loved each other for over thirty years, it should be time for Fran and Bob to slow down and smell the roses – until the lives of their adult children come crashing through the back door…
From the beloved writer of When the Rain Stops Falling, Andrew Bovell’s Things I Know to be True is a heartfelt drama examining the dynamics of family, love and how we understand truth in the face of adversity.
“Reaches into your heart from its opening moments and keeps you gripped until its shattering end.”
