Things I know to be True March TBA

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

BY ANDREW BOVELL DIRECTED BY CAROL WIMMER Families are funny. Things don’t always turn out the way you think they will. Children don’t always live up to expectations or do things the way their parents did. That’s what the Prices find out in this family drama set in modern-day Australia. Fran and Bob love their four kids dearly. Their kids love them just as much. But they don’t necessarily see eye to eye about everything … and sometimes that comes as a shock. Join them in the garden that has been the backdrop to so many events in their lives. The garden where they learn through each season of one turbulent year, that the love and understanding that bind them as a family are even more powerful than any of them could have imagined.

Leave a light onchair on stage

Together with other major theatres across Sydney, the Pavilion Theatre at Castle Hill has left one light on whilst shut due to the ban on public gatherings.
The Pavilion has installed a Ghost Light on its stage, joining the Sydney Opera House, the Capital Theatre, Belvoir and Griffin theatres (amongst others) in a symbolic response to the shut down of arts activity across the country.
Keeping a light on inside dark theatres is said to appease or scare away the ghost that many believe roams when theatres are empty. Apparently the practice goes back hundreds of years, and although the tradition had faded away over the past decades, restoring the light was a symbolic gesture. “ A “beacon of hope” for the entire arts community ...” said Ange Sullivan, head of lighting at the Sydney Opera House. “We might be gone for a while, but we’re definitely coming back”, he said.
Castle Hill Players were due to open their production of Things I Know to be True”, by Andrew Bovell (Directed by Carol Wimmer) at the Pavilion Theatre on 27 March. The production has been postponed until we come through ‘to the other side’, but in the meantime the ghost light, casting a positive shadow over the ready-to-go set and mothballed props and costumes, is testament to the shining light that is live theatre.

The Pavilion Theatre might be “dark” at the moment, but it’s certainly not “black”.
