The Joslyn Center is casting a reading of "The Lifespan of a Fact" by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell, as part of our 2020 Reading Series, which includes readings of seven challenging plays for the communities of the Coachella Valley, CA in our Arthur Newman Theatre. The play, produced on Broadway in 2018, is about media, journalism, and "alternative facts"--itself based on true events.

Rehearses and performs Feb. 29 at the Arthur Newman Theatre at The Joslyn Center (73-750 Catalina Way) in Palm Desert, CA.

The very short rehearsal period (a few hours) will require a lot of at-home prep work and readiness to bring established character and text work to the rehearsal and performance.
