Up Next: Lifespan of a Fact

starts June 20, 2024

By Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell
based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal
Directed by Jessica Holt

Intimate. Intriguing. Insouciant.

An intern at a top magazine is given the assignment of a lifetime – fact-checking a masterpiece by a legendary essayist. What the no-nonsense editor means as a simple task becomes a hilarious misadventure when it becomes clear that most of the facts in the essay are embellished, adjusted, or just made up. The essay is brilliant, but has the essayist undermined his own work or revealed a deeper truth by playing fast and loose to make his point? Facts battle with truth when the intern bucks his instructions and confronts the essayist in this Broadway hit.


“Spry humor, rippling tension and provocative reflections… ingenious!” - Hollywood Reporter
