THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT opens next weekend @ Chatham Community Players


The Chatham Community Players


Opens Next Weekend


May 5 - 14, 2023




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.

Read the Broadway World interview with Director Doug McLaughlin.

June 9 - 11, 2023


MARY'S WEDDING One Weekend Only



It is the eve of Mary's wedding and she is deep in dreaming. It’s a night full of dreams: dreams of love and her beloved Charlie, dreams of war and dreams of what might be.
When Mary and Charlie, filled with the passion, vulnerability and impulsiveness of youth, unexpectedly find one another sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and Mary and Charlie must surrender their love and their fate to the uncertainties of their tumultuous times.
