About the Event

Jim Fingal is a fresh out of Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John D'Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy- an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check D'Agata's essay, the two come head to head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts vs. truth.

Cast: Noel Carmichael, Michael Galligan, Scott Renderer

"...buoyantly literate...wholly resonant questions are wrestled with in this briskly entertaining play...you'll find yourself happy to have your preconceptions disturbed and assumptions unsettled."  -The Washington Post
