The Lifespan of a Fact
Jim Fingal is an eager young intern at a high-profile magazine hoping to impress his demanding editor-in-chief. When assigned the job of fact-checking a legendary writer’s essay about the city of Las Vegas, Jim discovers a huge problem: many of the essay’s details were made up. As the publication deadline looms, a battle between truth and fact ensues in a gripping and fast-paced comedic showdown. Drawing from true events, this “smart and engaging exploration of the nature of truth,” (Chicago Tribune) is “a tightly written and expertly crafted play that keeps the audience riveted from start to finish” (The New York Times).
