Home Made Theater Holds Open Auditions for “Lifespan of a Fact”

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Home Made Theater has announced open auditions for their February production of Lifespan of a Fact, written by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell. This production will be directed by Laurie Larson.

The auditions will be held Tuesday, Oct. 18 and Wednesday, Oct. 19 starting at 6:30 at Home Made Theater’s headquarters at the Wilton Mall (near JCPenney).

The cast consists of two men, and one woman, ages 25-plus.

Lifespan of a Fact is based on a real-life essay, What Happens There, written by John D’Agata, that took seven years to be fact-checked. This piece was commissioned for and rejected by Harper’s Magazine, but later picked up by Believer Magazine with the condition that Jim Fingal complete a fact check of D’Agata’s essay. The thrust of the play is the summary of discussions, arguments, negotiations, and revisions that took place over this seven-year period. Lifespan of a Fact invites the audiences to consider the deadly serious but briskly entertaining debate of the ethics of factual truth vs. the beauty of literary dishonesty.

To audition: bring a current photo (cannot be returned) and a resume. Auditions will be from the script (sides will be provided). No appointment necessary.

Rehearsals start in January and Performance dates are in February. For a detailed flyer with character descriptions visit Home Made Theater’s website,
