1. Script facts are situations, actions or events that happen in a story before a scene starts
2. Facts are not subject to interpretation because they have already happened (they are in fact, FACT!)
3. Facts are a great way to give direction. They can help you avoid arguments with actors because you can actually point to the “fact” in the script
4. Anytime there is more than one possible explanation for something in the script, it is not fact. Therefore, it is open to interpretation between the actor and the director
