The Lifespan of a Fact
Comedic Drama
by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell
Running in rep opening June 10 - 30

A timely meditation on fact vs. fiction

Based on a true story, this 2018 critically acclaimed Broadway play, is a fast-paced story exploding with blistering comedy and timely relevance. Facts become blurry when they're twisted into fiction in the high-stakes world of publishing. The demanding editor-in-chief of a high-end magazine hires a determined millennial fact-checker to work on a groundbreaking essay written by a famous author. The deadline is tight, the essay is dense, and everyone must make a good faith effort in telling the story honestly. But the overly eager Jim's over-the-top fact-checking creates the ultimate showdown of fact versus fiction.

ADVISORY: The Lifespan of a Fact is suitable for adults and older teenage audiences. Characters lock horns in a debate of fact vs. fiction, and they drop some F-bombs in the process Their explosive dialogue features other mature themes, including discussions of suicide.

Tony Award-nominated musical written by multi-Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton
An uplifting tale of girl-power and ultimately women's rights

Three secretaries band together after a series of injustices - and an accidental act of retribution - to take down their sexist boss, Franklin Hart Jr. While he is indisposed, the trio run the company with working conditions that in 2022 still remain a fantasy for most women: job flexibility, free health care, free daycare, and equal pay.

ADVISORY: Recommended age 12+. This production contains comic sexual references, light drug use, and the occasional curse word. Dolly Parton will not be appearing live in this production.
