What's on with Bath Drama...


Things I Know to be True by Andrew Bovell

WHEN: MONDAY 15th APRIL 19.30 / WEDNESDAY 17th APRIL 19.30

WHERE: Bath Drama Hut, Vane Street

PERFORMANCE DATES: 2nd - 5th October 2019


Bob and Fran have worked hard to give their four children the opportunities they never had. Now, with the kids ready to make lives of their own, it's time to sit back and smell the roses. But the change of the seasons reveals some shattering truths, leaving us asking whether it's possible to love too much.


NOTE ON PLAYING AGES - the ages highlighted are merely suggestions and whilst the family breakdown is listed this way, I'm most interested in finding six people who work well together and get that chemistry right, so don't be put off if you don't quite meet the bracket.


BOB - (55-65) - Has been made redundant, throws himself into his garden and his children to ignore the realities of his misery

FRAN - (45-60) - A senior nurse and seemingly in control of everything

PIP - (late thirties) - an education department bureaucrat, a mother, a wife, she has it all, right?

MARK - (early thirties) - an IT specialist. He's carried a secret in his heart for a long time.

BEN - (late twenties) - a financial worker - new apartment, fast car, he's the picture of success.

ROSIE - (the youngest sibling) - doesn't know who she is, or what she wants to be yet. A little lost.

The play premiered in 2016, it is beautifully touching, funny and bold.
