A Critically-Acclaimed Broadway Production Comes to the PURE Theatre—Check It Out!

Since 2003, the ensemble actors of Charleston’s acclaimed PURE Theatre have built a solid reputation for artistic excellence in provocative contemporary theatre. Endeavoring annually to outdo what was accomplished in years past, PURE continually makes three promises to its audience: to always tell a story worth listening to, only pursue excellence, and always gift the audience something to talk about.

This season, PURE Theatre is excited to present The Lifespan of a Fact.

A critically acclaimed 2018 Broadway play, this fast-paced story explodes with blistering comedy and timely relevance. Facts become blurry when they’re twisted into fiction in the high-stakes world of publishing. Emily Penrose, the demanding editor-in-chief of a high-end magazine, hires a determined millennial fact-checker named Jim Fingal to work on a groundbreaking essay written by the famous author John D’Agata.

Jim Fingal is about to stir up trouble. The demanding editor requires Jim to apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by the unorthodox author. Together, they take on the high-stakes world of publishing in this new comedy of conflict. The ultimate showdown between fact and fiction is about to begin with undeniably delicious consequences.

The Lifespan of a Fact is suitable for adults and older teenage audiences. The play runs approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission. Tickets are on sale now at
