Wit

Presented by Wasatch Theatre Company at Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center

How should we live our lives knowing that we will die? Is the way we live our lives and interact with others more important than what we achieve materially, professionally, or intellectually? These are but a few of the answerless questions posed in Margaret Edson’s Wit, the 1999 Pulitzer Prize winner that New York magazine says is “a dazzling and humane play that you will remember till your dying day.”

Wasatch Theatre Company is pleased to bring Wit to the stage, directed by Vicki Pugmire and starring Teresa Sanderson as Vivian Bearing, a renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the brilliant and difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne, and who has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. Her approach to the study of Donne: aggressively probing, intensely rational. But during the course of her illness—and her stint as a prize patient in an experimental chemotherapy program at a major teaching hospital—Vivian comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity and humor that are transformative both for her and the audience.
