The Lifespan of a Fact

Broadway
Play
Original
Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale return to Broadway to star in the world premiere of The Lifespan of a Fact, a new play by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell. Based on the stirring true story of John D'Agata's essay "What Happens There," about the Las Vegas suicide of teenager Levi Presley, The Lifespan of a Fact digs into a seven-year debate on the blurred lines of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction.

SYNOPSIS: A determined young fact checker is about to stir up trouble. The demanding editor has given him a big assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by the unorthodox author. Together, they take on the high-stakes world of publishing in this new comedy of conflict. The ultimate showdown between fact and fiction is about to begin—with undeniably delicious consequences.
