and Jim Fingal

Streaming February 18-21, 2022

Jim, a young, determined intern has a small job: to fact-check articles for one of the best magazines in the country. His editor has given him a big assignment: to apply his skill to a groundbreaking essay by a legendary 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 takes his fact-checking way too far, creating the ultimate showdown of fact versus fiction. Based on a true story, this critically acclaimed 2018 Broadway play offers fast-paced comedy with a provocative undercurrent of timely relevance.

Steamer No. 10 Theatre fundraiser

We'd originally planned to present our staged reading of "The Lifespan of a Fact" in person at our home base, Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany. But in order to keep everyone safe, we've had a slight change of plans and will be presenting the show virtually.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution on our Facebook fundraiser to help Steamer 10 stay afloat until we can perform there again in person. Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the theater.
