Sierra Classic Theatre’s Production of
THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT
by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell
Jan 12-22 Thurs-Sat @ 7pm Sun @ 4pm
at the Edison Theatre
Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal
Jim Fingal is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy. Emily Penrose is the editor hoping John’s essay will save her magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check the D’Agata’s essay, the two come head to head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts vs truth. The debate is hilarious, wildly entertaining and deeply resonant. Based on a true story and a book that shares it’s name, The Lifespan of a Fact will disturb preconceptions, unsettle assumptions and have you laughing out loud.
“This admirably compact play is a rib-bustingly funny farce in which things go from very bad to far worse in nothing flat” – The Wall Street Journal
“A lively debate on the ethics of factual truth vs. the beauty of literary dishonesty” – Variety
(Don’t miss the real JIM FINGAL’s talk back after the show after the Jan 19th and Jan 20th performances.)
Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre’s Production of
by Neil Simon
Feb 9-19 Thurs-Sat @ 7pm Sun @ 4pm
at the Edison Theatre
Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York city.
A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, “I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!”
“Wonderfully funny…The blockbuster is the wildest and most uproarious farce I have seen on a stage.” – New York Daily News
“A wonderfully happy and gratifying evening of sheer entertainment…Richly funny.” – New York Post
