New Mexico Actors Lab (NMAL) kicks off its 2021 season with the truth-based docu-drama The Lifespan of a Fact, August 5-22, 2021. Derived directly from arguments between noted American essayist John D’Agata and young fact-checker Jim Fingal, who is sent by a major New York magazine to parse D’Agata’s piece about a spectacular Las Vegas suicide. What results is a debate about how facts can be distorted to create a more compelling narrative.

Directed by Robert Benedetti, the production features Nicholas Ballas, Mickey Dolan and Kat Sawyer. Run dates for the play are Thursday – Saturday, August 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21 at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, August 8, 15, 22 at 2 p.m. Note: Masks are now required at all NMAL performances until current Covid surge abates.
