About this show

The Salem Theatre Company will present Margaret Edson's powerful drama Wit as the next main stage offering of Season Eight. Edson's play, called "moving, funny, and wise" by the London Times and "among the finest plays of the decade" by The Wall Street Journal, is a poignant look at love and knowledge, grace and redemption, and living and dying. In the play, English professor Dr. Vivian Bearing, diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic ovarian cancer, struggles with receiving a controversial experimental treatment. As she faces the inevitability of her own death, Vivian confronts the tension between compassion and intellect and comes to some startling and moving conclusions.
