Past Event

(Comedy-Drama) The Lifespan of a Fact, written by Jeremy Karaken, David Murrell and Gordon Farrell is based loosely on a true story and explores the use of hyperbole in media.  John D’Gata is a talented essayist who is given the task of writing about the suicide of a teen boy for an important New York magazine.  Jim Fingal is assigned the task of “fact-checking” the essay before publication.

Described as a comedy-drama, the play drills down into how and why facts are important, particularly when they can be so easily distorted through repetition and the media.  The Lifespan of a Fact ran on Broadway in 2018 and 2019 with the all-star cast of Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones and Bobby Carnavale.  The BCT production will be directed by Sydnie Grosberg Ronga, who has helmed many of the theater’s most-successful productions in recent years and stars a trio of actors from St. Louis and New York in their debut appearances at Bluff City Theater.  It runs from April 13 to April 22.
