Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Andrew Bovell's controversial play, Things I Know To Be True, is coming to Mackay for a limited season, from Thursday 19th October.
Directed by Victor Scott (When the Rain Stops Falling, Ruthless - the Musical), Things I Know To Be True explores the complexities of the Price family - a typical suburban family on the surface, but with some interesting secrets. Described by the Globe & Mail as "quietly devastating", the play combines issues such as gender confusion, sexual inequality, redundancy, and embezzlement in a thought-provoking context that will have you looking at your own family with fresh eyes.
Bovell’s play has enjoyed international success following its 2016 premiere by the State Theatre Company South Australia, being performed in the United States (2019), Canada (2023), Britain, and Spain, as well as at the New Theatre in Sydney (2022). It has also been adapted into a miniseries for Matchbox / Amazon / Blossom Films for production in 2024.
Kucom season dates: 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 & 28 October at 7.30, with a matinee on Sunday 22 October at 2pm.
