The Lifespan of a Fact

(Previews began Sept. 20, 2018, opened Oct. 18, 2018, tickets on sale thru Jan. 13, 2019)

(1 hr 35 mins, no intermission)

Jim Fingal, played by Daniel Radcliffe, fact-checks articles for a national magazine. But when his editor (Cherry Jones) entrusts him with a big assignment, a major work of literary nonfiction by an important author, played by Bobby Cannavale, Fingal has a problem: How can he find the truth when most of the article is made up? The world-premiere play by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell is based on the true story as recounted in the essay and book by real-life John D’Agata and Jim Fingal.
