“Death, be not proud…” The winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Margaret Edson’s Wit is an honest, unflinching look at the last months of a cancer patient’s life. English professor Vivian Bearing is proud, intelligent, and dying of stage IV ovarian cancer. Facing down an experimental treatment that may prolong her life, Dr. Bearing reflects on her life and condition through the intricacies of the English language and the Holy Sonnets of John Donne. At times humorous, at times devastating, Wit is one of a kind.
