The Lifespan of a Fact
By Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell
Directed by Joe Hanreddy
Celebrated author John D’Agata has just written a sublime and shattering magazine essay. But is his story true? And how negotiable are the facts? When the world’s most neurotically precise fact-checker appears on the author’s Las Vegas doorstep and starts dissecting his work, the ultimate showdown between “truth” and “accuracy” begins. As the deadline looms, the high-stakes world of publishing becomes a battle royale in this brand new comedy of conflict. Timely and terrific, this brainy Broadway hit wrestles with truth, what constitutes it, and who gets to decide.
This online production is a departure from the current brand of Zoom theater - Lifespan is a unique multimedia presentation, created by a special collaboration of theatermakers and digital artists.
