Following a hugely successful 2016 tour, Things I Know To Be True returns to Oxford Playhouse this autumn.

As beautifully touching as it is funny and bold, it tells the story of a family 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.

Featuring Frantic Assembly’s celebrated physicality, Things I Know To Be True is a complex and intense study of the mechanics of a family that is both poetic and brutally frank.

Duration: 2 hours 20mins with interval
