A timely meditation on fact vs. fiction

Based on a true story, this 2018 critically acclaimed Broadway play is a fast-paced story exploding with blistering comedy and timely relevance. Facts become blurry when they're twisted into fiction in the high-stakes world of publishing. The demanding editor-in-chief of a high-end magazine hires a determined millennial fact-checker to work on a groundbreaking essay written by a famous author. The deadline is tight, the essay is dense, and everyone must make a good faith effort in telling the story honestly. But the overly eager Jim's over-the-top fact-checking creates the ultimate showdown of fact versus fiction.


"Wholly resonant questions [are] wrestled with in this briskly entertaining'll find yourself happy to have your preconceptions disturbed and assumptions unsettled." The Washington Post

" Critic's Pick! Designed for laughs, the play has a provocative undercurrent regarding issues that make it a compelling piece of theatre." Cincinnati CityBeat

"...deadly serious but oh-so-funny..." Variety 

RUN TIME: Approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission

*Advisory: The Lifespan of a Fact is suitable for adults and older teenage audiences. Characters lock horns in a debate of fact vs. fiction, and they drop some F-bombs in the process. Their explosive dialogue features other mature themes, including discussions of suicide.
