The Lifespan of a Fact

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 10
Loretto-Hilton Center 130 Edgar Road, Webster Groves Webster Groves


John D'Agata is a literary essayist whose latest piece is a magazine article — more of a classicist's rumination, perhaps — on the Las Vegas suicide of a teenager. The problem is his fact-checker, Jim Fingal, who insists on precision of language and detail. D'Agata's not interested in details; he's trying to convey the sweep of symbolism inherent in the death of a young man in Sin City. Through emails and eventually in person, both men wage what is increasingly a very personal war over language, intention and fact. Can facts be molded to better get at D'Agata's meaning? Is the truth of anything in fact quantifiable — and can it be done on a very tight deadline? Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell and Gordon Farrell's comic play The Lifespan of a Fact is about the struggle to get the truth in print, a feat made more difficult by that peculiar habit of men, taking all criticism as an attack. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents The Lifespan of a Fact Tuesday through Sunday (October 18 to November 10) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $20 to $94.50.
