WIT Celebrates Anniversary At The MATCH In Sept

WIT Celebrates Anniversary At The MATCH In Sept

Wit, by Margaret Edson, presented by actor Pamela Vogel opens for eight performances in a limited run; a production in the inaugural year of the Houston Equity Festival a collection of local professional actors, all members of the union Actors' Equity Association, each of whom is mounting her/his own show during the summer and fall of 2019. Ms. Vogel (Leap and the Net Will Appear / Catastrophic Theatre) plays Vivian Bearing, and Vance Johnson (Bootycandy / Catastrophic Theatre) and (Passing Strange / Standing Room Only Productions) directs.

Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned scholar and professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the brilliant and difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne, has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. Wit marks a 20-year anniversary this year (1998/99 NYC production). No longer about silence on these women's health issues, it remains a candid story about a terminal diagnosis. The play illuminates the familiar, surreal feeling we experience when devastating events occur or medical examinations and hospital stays happen, to which all audience members, female and male, can relate.
