THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT: Meet Christopher Honsaker as John D'Agata

Based on true events, the critically acclaimed 2018 Broadway play THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT will be performed in the HCT Firemen's Kitchen this November 11th-19th.

Returning to the Hickory Community Theatre stage as audacious essayist John D'Agata is the award-winning Christopher Honsaker.

After living and working in New York City for 24 years, Honsaker returned to Hickory to be closer to family and hasn't looked back since.

Honsaker previously appeared at Hickory Community Theatre as Professor Harold Hill in THE MUSIC MAN. Other HCT credits include THE LION IN WINTER, NOISES OFF and WAIT UNTIL DARK. Other area credits include WAIT UNTIL DARK (a play so nice he did it twice) at The Green Room Community Theatre, and EQUUS at Foothills Community Theatre. Honsaker has won three Kay Awards for Best Actor, as well as a Best Actor Award from the Metrolina Theatre Association.

For Honsaker, THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT proved appealing in both story and character. "I like his temperament and biting humor," Honsaker says of his role as John D'Agata. He also appreciates "the amount of diverse and talented people" that HCT draws to all of its productions.

Performances of THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT are Fridays and Saturdays, November 11th through 19th at 7:30 PM; Sunday, November 13th at 2:30 PM; and, Thursday, November 17th at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $16 for adults, $10 for youth and students.

Tickets are available online at, or by phone at 828-328-2283. The theatre box office is open from 12-5 PM Wednesday through Friday, or one half-hour before a performance.

Due to the continued risk of COVID-19 in Catawba County, and in accordance with the latest guidance from the CDC, the Hickory Community Theatre encourages patrons to wear a mask or other face covering while inside the building.
