'A dazzling and humane play'
- New York Magazine

A celebrated but exacting professor of metaphysical poetry, Vivian Bearing has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. As she submits herself to an experimental treatment, Vivian approaches her illness with the same uncompromising rigour she brings to bear on the sonnets of John Donne.

A Pulitzer Prize winning play, Wit is a striking and sharply funny reflection on the frailty of existence and of the complex relationship between knowledge and love.
