Things I Know To Be TrueA hit here at the Lyric two years ago and now on a second UK tour, Andrew Bovell's Things I Know To Be True is brought to the stage by Frantic Assembly and State Theatre Company Of South Australia. The drama tells the story of a family and marriage through the eyes of four grown siblings. Original UK cast members, Matthew Barker and Kirsty Oswald, return to reprise their roles as Mark and Rosie. Joining them are Cate Hamer as Fran Price, married to Bob, played by John McArdle, parents who have worked their fingers to the bone. Their four grownup children, ready to fly the nest, struggle to define themselves beyond their parents' love and expectations.

 

About Lyric Hammersmith

Frank Matcham's velvet and gilt theatre was saved from demolition - following a public outcry - by being carefully dismantled, moved from its location further down King Street and then rehoused on its current site. As a consequence, the Lyric Hammersmith's gorgeous Victorian auditorium is housed in a severely utlitarian concrete cube, above Kings Mall shopping centre. More about Lyric Hammersmith
