It has been announced that Frantic Assembly will once again tour its 2016 play Things I Know to be True from the 27th September.
Written by Andrew Bovell and co-directed by Scott Graham and Geordie Brookman, Things I Know to be True is a 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.
This new UK tour will tour to the Oxford Playhouse, The Lowry in Salford, Leicester Curve, Mercury Theatre in Colchester, York Theatre Royal, Chester Storyhouse, Southampton’s Nuffield, Poole Lighthouse and London’s Lyric Hammersmith.
Talking about the news writer 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.”
Casting for the production has yet to be announced.
Things I Know to be True features Frantic Assembly’s celebrated physicality to explore the mechanics of a family that is both poetic and brutally frank.
Andrew Bovell’s previous plays includes When The Rain Stops Falling, Speaking In Tongues and an adaptation of Kate Grenville’s The Secret River, with screen work including Lantana and A Most Wanted Man.
