“The Lifespan of a Fact” Opens at Elmwood Playhouse in Nyack NY

 In News

Elmwood Playhouse of Nyack, NY will be presenting The Lifespan of a Fact, written by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal and directed by Claudia Stefany. The Lifespan of a Fact is a provocative exploration of what happens when the facts get in the way of a good story. Sharp, smart, and crackling with energyโ€“it’s a fast-paced battle over the nature of truth. The Lifespan of a Fact runs January 13 through February 4: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm, with a Thursday night performance on February 2 at 8 pm. Tickets are $27 / $24 Seniors, Youth, and Military.

In a dramatization of actual events, a writer and a fact checker clash over the content of an essay about a teen suicide. Explosive (and surprisingly humorous) confrontations, mediated by their editor, punctuate the struggle to meet a deadline without losing sight of “the truth.”

The Lifespan of a Fact features John Ade (of New City, NY), Hillel Rosenshine (of Manhattan, NY), and Meg Sewell (of Valley Cottage, NY).
