Why See Wit?

Cynthia Nixon stars as Vivian Bearing, a professor of poetry who is diagnosed with late-stage cancer in the Broadway debut of Margaret Edson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play.

A brilliant and brutally demanding professor - a specialist in the life-and-death themes of John Donne's Holy Sonnets - now finds herself the subject of research designed to try to save her life.
