Things I Know To Be True is about love in many of its forms. At times comforting and supportive. At others suffocating and destructive. But always love. Bob and Fran Price have four adult children: Pip, Mark, Ben, and Rosie. Each child has his or her own unique struggles and secrets that they try to keep hidden from their parents, but Fran has a knack for knowing what is true in each of their lives. As the children try to redefine their lives separately from their parents, what is real and genuine in the Price family falls apart under scrutiny, and Bob and Fran must redefine their relationships with their children and with each other. Funny, poignant, and heart-breaking, it examines the dynamics of a family and how they understand truth in the face of tragedy.
