THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT

by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell,
based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal

directed by Brendan Burke

LIFESPAN OF A FACT follows Jim Fingal, a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a sinking literary magazine. When his editor charges him with the assignment of checking an article by a prominent literary powerhouse, John D’Agata, the magazine hopes this is the article that will change their fortunes. When not everything checks out, Fingal and D’Agata go head to head as hard facts battle against emotional truths in a high-stakes and hilarious verbal showdown.
