The Chatham Community
Players is excited to present virtually staged reading of THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT by Jeremy Kareken & David Marrella and
Gordon Farrel as a part of their successful Sundays @ 7 play reading series.
One Night ONLY – Sunday, February
28th at 7:00 PM. Gus Ibranyi directs.
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.
dialogue…once the writer and the fact-checker get into a lively debate on the
ethics of factual truth vs. the beauty of literary dishonesty, it’s time to
really sit up and listen…Their deadly serious but oh-so-funny ethical dispute
is brilliantly argued…the debate at the heart of this play transcends comedy
and demands serious attention.” —Variety.
literate…wholly resonant questions [are] wrestled with in this briskly
entertaining play…you’ll find yourself happy to have your preconceptions
disturbed and assumptions unsettled.” —Washington Post.
