2022/23 Black Box Season
SEPTEMBER 16 – 25, 2022
LIFESPAN OF A FACT
September 16 – 25, 2022
By Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell
Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal
Jim 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.
“Buoyantly 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
“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
