"I was dismayed to discover that the play would contain elements of...humor." So says Dr. Vivian Bring as she introduces her story to us. Wit is a brilliantly crafted and unfliching look at the last chapter of Ms. Bearing's life. Armed with a sharp intellect, this professor of 17th century poetry wrestles with the ultimate question of what it means to be alive.
"Every once in a while a play comes along that bonds people together in extroardinary ways."
-The Boston Globe
1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
This is an intense theatrical experience that we do not recommend for younger theater-goers.
