Photo Flash: Take a First Look at Frantic Assembly's Stunning THINGS I KNOW TO BE TRUE

Production photography is now available for the UK premiere of Things I Know To Be True, an exciting international co-production betweenFrantic Assembly and State Theatre Company of South Australia. The play is currently in previews at Lyric Hammersmith and opening night will be Friday 16th September, ahead of its tour to Oxford, Warwick, Liverpool, Salford and Chichester.

A brand new commission by leading Australian writer Andrew Bovell, Things I Know To Be True is co-directed by Frantic Assembly's Tony and Olivier Award nominated artistic director Scott Graham and State Theatre Company's artistic director Geordie Brookman. Following its world premiere at Adelaide Festival Centre in May 2016, Things I Know To Be True has been recreated for the UK, with a UK cast, as part of State Theatre Company's first ever international co-production.

Featuring Frantic Assembly's celebrated physicality, the production stars Matthew Barker (Mark Price), Natalie Casey (Pip Price), Richard Mylan (Ben Price), Kirsty Oswald (Rosie Price), Ewan Stewart (Bob Price) and Imogen Stubbs (Fran Price).

A complex and intense study of the mechanics of a family that is both poetic and brutally frank, Things I Know To Be True tells the 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 smell the roses. But the changing seasons bring home some shattering truths.

Andrew Bovell is regarded as one of Australia's greatest storytellers, for critically acclaimed plays including When The Rain Stops Falling, Speaking In Tongues and an adaptation of Kate Grenville's The Secret River, as well as screen work including Lantana and A Most Wanted Man.
