When it was first performed in New York in 1998, Wit was a revelation to critics and audiences alike. In writing a play about terminal cancer and metaphysical poetry - and exploring the mysteries of both through the central character of Vivian Bearing, a highly accomplished but emotionally remote scholar who is forced to reassess her life during her harrowing stint in a cancer ward - Margaret Edson crafted a work that was as intellectually challenging as it was emotionally immediate.
