What? Things I Know To Be True
Where? Lyric Hammersmith
When? Until 3rd February 2018
Andrew Bovell's Things I Know To Be True is a beautiful and emotional family drama directed by Frantic Assembly in association with the State Theatre Company South Australia. Rosie, played by Kirsty Oswald, returns to her South Australia hometown after a failed gap year love affair. After her world falls apart, she attempts to make a list of things she knows to be unequivocally true and discovers she can only put one thing on it: her family and home remain constant. The ensuing drama documents myriad pressures which test the relationships of this everyday family.
Frantic Assembly's unique style of theatre blends naturalistic scenes with physical drama and design elements that accentuate the plight of the family. It added up to a visually stunning and emotionally charged performance that resonated with Harrodian's 14s and 15s drama students when they saw the production on 23rd January.
