Head to The Waterworks for The Lifespan of a Fact, A Classic Theatre’s October Production.
The Lifespan of a Fact takes a peek into the high-stakes world of publishing where facts become blurry when they’re twisted into fiction.
Jim Fingal is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy—an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check D’Agata’s essay, the two come head-to-head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts versus truth.
Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal
