Synopsis

A brilliant and respected university professor, known for her teaching of the difficult and metaphysical poems of John Donne, is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Throughout the course of her experimental treatments, she comes to an understanding of her work, and her life, with profound humor. Winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the New York Times called WIT a “brutally human and beautifully layered new play…you feel both enlightened and, in a strange way, enormously comforted.” Presented in an intimate staging atmosphere, WIT is sure to move you.
