"... the kind of theatrical experience of which legends are made." –The New York Times

"I was dismayed to discover that the play would contain elements of... humor." So says Dr. Vivian Bearing as she introduces her story to us. Wit is a brilliantly-crafted and unflinching 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.

Wit is getting rave reviews! Check out what the Star Tribune, Pioneer Press, City Pages, and more have to say on our Press Page.
