THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT

“I’m not interested in accuracy; I’m interested in truth.”

“…terrifically funny dialogue …the debate at the heart of this play transcends comedy and demands serious attention.” —Variety

In this blistering comedy an exacting fact checker takes a famous writer to task for bending the reality of a tragic incident to serve the art of his narrative in the retelling of it. The survival of a prominent magazine depends on the article being a success. Sparks fly and a deadline looms as the editor referees a pitched battle between accuracy and the truth, and who’s to say what that is?

“So canny in its writing and presentation, The Lifespan of a Fact may not only inspire audiences to think more closely about the sources from which they get their news, but maybe even to question the accuracy of the social media memes they've been liking and forwarding.” —Broadway World

Generously sponsored by Jerry and Honie Berko.
