Worcester Historical Museum – Fletcher Auditorium

4th Wall Production Company and Worcester Historical Museum present The Lifespan of a Fact by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell and Gordon Farrell.  Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal.  Directed by Frank Bartucca.

Fact-checking a magazine article seems like a routine task, until it isn’t. A famous magazine editor, a well-known author, and a zealous fact-checker prove to be a combustible trio in this tense, fast moving drama based upon true events. How far can one go in writing about a young man’s suicide before reality is distorted and moral boundaries are crossed? Strong adult language used throughout. Audience and parental discretion advised.

Ticket pricing: Museum Members and Seniors $24.00, General Admission $27.00, Students $14.00. To purchase tickets visit or call 508-951-2665.
