“You need all those great moments to know what happiness is like, how to be supportive of other people. And then, when they’re not perfect, which they’re not, you learn how to be independent and strong.”
Actor Kirsty Oswald explores the symbiotic responsibility of opening Things I Know To Be True to an audience in soliloquy, inviting them as friends on a shared journey, while coming to terms with and conveying the emotional singularity of her own story.
Describing Rosie as strong, trusting, positive and surprisingly stubborn, Oswald examines how the character’s inability to speak for herself can ultimately result in letting others down, as she realises the limitations of the things she knows to be true.
