A COVID-19 update from Circa

Theatre of tiny miracles

One year in the life of a family. The Prices are just like me and you. They’re not from the top end of town, but they’re not battlers either. Fran and Bob have loved each other for thirty years. They’ve built a home, raised four strong children and kept their sense of humour. It should be time to sit back and smell the roses. But just when things should be slowing down, the complicated lives of their kids are about to come crashing through the back fence.

Things I Know to Be True is a profound and deeply familiar study of the mechanics of family, and the things which sustain, protect and inhibit us. This is theatre that will make your heart sing from the writer of Lantana and When the Rain Stops Falling.
