Whitefish Theatre Company presents "Lifespan of a Fact" (Black Curtain production)
SPECIAL EVENT: ONLINE VIEWING ONLY!
How negotiable is a fact? That’s the premise of this critically acclaimed 2018 Broadway hit filled with blistering comedy and contemporary relevance. At a high-end magazine, a demanding editor-in-chief hires Jim, a determined millennial fact-checker, to work on a groundbreaking essay written by a celebrated author. Like magazines everywhere, this one is reeling from poor ad sales and shrinking circulation - but with this potentially sensational essay, salvation looms. The deadline is tight, the essay is dense, and everyone must make a good faith effort to tell the story honestly. When the fact checker goes too far, however, the ultimate showdown between “truth” and “accuracy” begins – with deliciously funny consequences.
“A SMART, RIB-BUSTINGLY FUNNY PLAY” - The Wall Street Journal
“Terrifically engaging & fascinating. It's what you call a good time.” — The New York Times
