By Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell

Directed by Joe Hanreddy

Celebrated author John D’Agata has just written a sublime and shattering magazine essay. But is his story true? And how negotiable are the facts? When the world’s most neurotically precise fact-checker appears on the author’s Las Vegas doorstep and starts dissecting his work, the ultimate showdown between “truth” and “accuracy” begins. As the deadline looms, the high-stakes world of publishing becomes a battle royale in this brand new comedy of conflict. Timely and terrific, this brainy Broadway hit wrestles with truth, what constitutes it, and who gets to decide.

“…a rib-bustingly funny farce in which things go from very bad to far worse in nothing flat.” – The Wall Street Journal
