The Lifespan of a Fact

By Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell & Gordon Farrell. Based on the essay/Book by John D’Agata & Jim Fingal.

“Terrifically engaging….a good time.” – The New York Times

“The Best Theater of 2018!” — Variety

A demanding editor has given an eager young fact checker a big assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by an unorthodox author on a sensitive subject. The resulting conflict between fact-checker and author casts a comic light on the intersection between truth and art. In an era of #FakeNews and #AlternativeFacts, it might seem ripped from today’s news, but the story, fresh from its successful run on Broadway, was inspired by real life events that predate even Twitter!

Contains some strong language.
