Neither Jim (Ramon Duterte, left) nor John (Gabe Hakvaag, right) changes his viewpoint so it's up to Emily (Lilace Guignard, center) to decide whether to publish John's essay or not.


Truth. What is it, and who gets to decide? This weekend, the last three performances of Hamilton-Gibson's production of the comedy "The Lifespan of a Fact" will be in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro. The show will be at 7:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday, Sept. 17 and 18 and at 2:30 p.m. this Sunday, Sept. 19. 

Feedback has been positive about this show," said Director Jessie Thompson. Among the comments are “Broadway quality acting” and “Thought provoking.” 

"It's really a smart play and brilliantly cast," said Mary Ginn of Wellsboro. "I went to see it twice because it is really that good. It's funny and poignant and based on a true story."

At its core are the head-butting exchanges between the author who has taken liberties with the truth and the fact-checker's demand for ethical realism. In the final scene, the audience learns the author, his fact-checker and the editor-in-chief are still struggling to find the right answer. 

Ramon Duterte is playing Jim, the young fact-checker; Gabe Hakvaag is John, the professional writer; and Lilace Guignard is Emily, editor-in-chief. 

This comedy is written for adults and mature teenagers.  It includes profanity but no sexual content. 

Tickets are $14 for adults and $6 for youth, 18 and under. Also available are FlexPasses for $60. Tickets should be ordered in advance at hgp.booktix.com or by calling the HG office at 570-724-2079 with credit card information. 

Seating is limited. All audience members are asked to wear masks or face shields according to CDC protocols.
