Riverside Theatres & Clock and Spiel Productions presents the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama about life, death, and the significance of a semicolon, WIT, from the 6–9 March at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta.

Vivian Bearing is 50, in the prime of her life, highly respected and at the height of a stellar academic career. She’s a fiercely rational academic with a passion for poetry. And she has just weeks to live. As Vivian comes to terms with who she is; mind, body and soul, we’re left to ponder – can we conquer death, or at least our fear of it, by the way we live our lives?

Directed by Helen Tonkin, WIT is not primarily a play about cancer, nor about the wit of John Donne but is a play about the balance between head and heart, life and death, and the significance of a semicolon.
