Audition Notice for

"The Lifespan of a Fact"

We are pleased to offer, "The Lifespan of a Fact" by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell, and directed by Kelly Thompson as our final Naked Stage production of this season.

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 versus truth.

Roles include:
EMILY PENROSE - late 40's - 60's, Editor-in-Chief 
JIM FINGAL - mid 20's, a fresh out of Harvard fact checker
( please note that the third role of JOHN D'AGATA has been cast)
