Vivian Bearing is a genius level intellect who has gotten very far using only her search for knowledge and shear force of will. When Vivian is diagnosed with ovarian cancer, she must learn the value of kindness and compassion, that sometimes knowledge is not enough, and that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in her philosophy. The journey taken in WIT is one of beauty, pain, humor, poetry, and above all, what it is to be human. Winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, WIT is a play that simply needs to be experienced. It will stay with you long after the final curtain.
