Wit, Margaret Edson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play - a sardonic, funny, and heart-wrenching exploration of the puzzle of our irrevocable journey toward death, as seen through the eyes of a 50-year-old professor of English Literature who has been diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer. She reflects on her academic career and begins to question the single-minded values that have always directed her. The play asks us to examine the aspects of life that make it truly worth living.
"[A] brutally human and beautifully layered new playyou feel both enlightened and, in a strange way, enormously comforted." New York Times
Following the Sunday, July 14 matinee performance, we will have a talk-back discussion about the play.
Featuring: Beth Wallace, David Ketter, Teague Parker, Linnea Groh, Ethel Stephens, Jim Lortz, Will Eames, Monty Rozema, Jason Hamann, Isabelle Bushue.
Special guest director Kayla Adams.
