Event Details

The Desert Ensemble Theatre presents The Life Span of a Fact by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell on January 26–28 & February 2–4, 2024. Directed by David Youse.

Jim is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John  is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about a suicide—that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check D’Agata’s work, the two come head to head in a battle over facts versus truth. Based on a book by D’Agata and Fingal, The Lifespan of a Fact premiered on Broadway at Studio 54 on October 18, 2018, for a 16-week run. 

“...a quick and entertaining play that makes a good case for the value of truth.” (Adam Feldman, Time Out)
