Clock and Spiel Productions present Wit by Margaret Edson.
Vivian Bearing is 50 and in her prime. She has dedicated her life to deciphering and interpreting the metaphysical poetry of John Donne and is a highly respected Professor at the height of her career as an English literary scholar. But she’s just found out she’s dying.
This powerfully imagined play is cuttingly funny and beautifully poignant. It is not primarily a play about cancer, nor about the wit of John Donne – it is a play about the value of human warmth, the balance between head and heart; a play about life, not death. Twenty years after winning the Pulitzer Prize, Wit is as powerful and relevant as ever – to all of us.
October 16 -26 at the Seymour Centre, performances 7.30pm Tue - Sat plus some matinees.
