Wit Comes to Flanagan Theatre
Performances: 7:30 p.m. Oct. 10–12 & 2 p.m. Oct. 13, Flanagan Theatre
Wit, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Margaret Edson, explores the manner in which a professor of English, Vivian Bearing, faces her losing battle with ovarian cancer.
“In the play,” says director Craig Quintero, assistant professor of theatre, “we witness Vivian as she battles to retain her intellectual rigor, grace, humor, and humanity, while painfully shifting roles from scholar to the subject of study in an experimental chemotherapy program. This is a play about the poetic beauty of life and the manner in which we face death.”
We invite audience members to participate in a short post-performance discussion with the cast and medical professionals.
Performances are open to the public, and free tickets are available from the box office.
