4th Wall Theatre Company presents The Lifespan of a Fact
The Lifespan of a Fact is a recent Broadway smash hit inspired by John D'Agata's and Jim Fingal's debate-style book of the same name and brings to life the endless arguments of its original authors.
Fingal is a fresh out of Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. 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 Fingal is assigned to fact-check D'Agata's essay, the two come head to head in a hysterical yet gripping ethical dispute over facts versus truth.
