What is the story of the play?
The play is about a young fact checker, Jim Fingal (played by Daniel Radcliffe). His job is to check the facts and information of the articles assigned to him. His boss, Cherry Jones, has given an important assignment to him. He is asked to apply his fact checking skills to a piece written by a famous author, John D’Agata. His essay, titled ‘What Happens There’ is centered on the suicide of Levi Presly, a young boy who killed himself in Las Vegas in 2002 after jumping from the observation deck of the Stratosphere Hotel.
While reviewing the piece, the fact checker ends up creating a problem for Cherry Jones as he discovers a number of discrepancies and factual inaccuracies in the article and edits the majority of the writer’s piece. Fingal questions a number of facts, etymologies, conversations and statistics. For example, the essay says that at the time of Levi’s death, there were 34 licensed strip clubs in Las Vegas. Upon checking the facts, Fingal finds out that the figure was wrong; the correct number of licensed strip clubs was 31.
When Fingal brings up this issue with D’Agata, the writer argues that he has used the number 34 because it works better in that particular sentence. Fingal is shocked that D’Agata has changed the facts of the story and has failed to understand that the gravity of the situation demands accuracy.
The unorthodox author dismisses Fingal’s concerns and says that the article does not need any fact checking. However, Fingal believes that facts cannot be twisted for ‘artistic reasons’ because the reader puts his trust in the author, thus his trust should not be broken. If the author feeds his readers lies and untrue statements, then he fails to do justice to his job. He believes that writers should not have the liberty to change facts for the sake of elegance or rhythm.
However, the author’s stance is that the essays are not read for mere accuracy but for the poetry of experience. He believes that the readers judge a piece of writing based only on its artistic merits. This assumption can have several harmful consequences. The readers can find it extremely difficult to spot what is invented and what is the truth.
The Theme of the play
The play is centered on the theme that there is a fine line between poetic license and irresponsibility. It questions the audiences whether the author should be given the liberty to mould the facts for artistic reasons. It puts forward the question that can journalists really tell the truth to their readers.
The play revolves around an interesting debate about authenticity in storytelling. It sheds light on the fact that authors have a responsibility of presenting facts to the readers and should not mislead them. It floats the idea that writers need to swear allegiance to factual accuracy. Changing facts and details, no matter how trivial they may be, can misinform the readers. So the play poses a question; should writers distort information to suit their artistic musing?
