The Lifespan of a Fact, a new play by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell, and directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman, started performances September 20 at Studio 54, ahead of an official opening October 18.

The cast is comprised of Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, and Daniel Radcliffe, and is based on the true events surrounding John D'Agata's essay "What Happens There" about the suicide of teenager Levi Presley. The play explores the quandary of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction, and features Cannavale as the writer D'Agata, Radcliffe as determined young fact-checker John Fingal, and Jones as his demanding boss Emily Penrose.

The creative team includes Mimi Lien (set design), Linda Cho (costume design), and Jennifer Schriever (lighting design).
