Family dynamics at the Swan

AUDIENCES at the Swan Theatre in Yeovil start their 2024 season with the local premiere of Australian Andrew Bovell’s Things I Know to be True, directed by Mark Payne.

The touching, funny and bold play, by award-winning screen writer and playwright Bovell, had its British premiere in 2016, at Warwick, Chichester and the Lyric Hammersmith. It is described as “a complex and intense portrait of the mechanics of a family, and a marriage, through the eyes of four siblings struggling to define themselves beyond their parents love and expectations.”

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

Performances at the Swan are from Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th January, nightly at 7.45, and tickets are selling fast.
