Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Wit is a play about life, death and the significance of a semicolon

Vivian Bearing is 50, in the prime of her life, highly respected and at the height of a stellar academic career. She’s a fiercely rational academic with a passion for poetry. And she has just weeks to live.

 

Wit isn’t a play about death, it’s a play about life. All of life, and everything that makes us who we are. As Vivian comes to terms with who she is; mind, body and soul, we’re left to ponder – can we conquer death, or at least our fear of it, by the way we live our lives?

 

Wit is not primarily a play about cancer, nor about the wit of John Donne – it is a play about the balance between head and heart; a play about life, death and the significance of a semicolon.
