The Lifespan Of A Fact will take place at the Lean Ensemble Theater Jan. 19-29.
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 hilarious yet gripping battle over facts versus truth. Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows at 7:30 p.m.
