This fast-paced, blistering comedy, THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT,  is written by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell and Gordon Farrel and based on the stirring true story of John d'Agata's essay, “What Happens There,” that ignited a seven-year debate on the blurred lines of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction.  This ultimate showdown of fact versus fiction is directed by Brüka alum David Richards.


Doors open one-half hour prior to the showtime. Any tickets remaining unclaimed as of showtime will be released to the stand-by line.
