The Collective Face Theatre Ensemble presents
The Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Margaret Edson
Directed by Karla Knudsen
A one-act play, Wit is a funny, compassionate and ultimately devastating account of a brilliant poetry scholar succumbing to ovarian cancer. It is a work of delicately calibrated opposites, pitting detached clinical observation against raw human emotion while somehow making dry humor and wrenching pathos travel hand in hand.
Those attending opening night will be treated to a post-show reception with the cast and crew with food provided by Joe’s Homemade Cafe, Bakery & Catering.
In concert with the production, Wit’s Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Margaret Edson will give a talk and conduct a question-and-answer session on the play at 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 7. The presentation is free and open to the public; tax-deductible contributions of $10 or more to The Collective Face Theatre Ensemble are encouraged and, because seating is limited, reservations are strongly recommended.
Ms. Edson also will attend the Saturday, March 7, 8 p.m. performance of the play and conduct a question-and-answer session for the audience following the performance.
The production features The Collective Face Theatre Ensemble members Dandy Barrett, Richie Cook, Mark Rand and Vanessa Stipkovits, as well as Lynita Spivey, Anna Burrell, Brandon Spaulding and Danielle Frazier.
Tickets: $20 general admission; $15 seniors/students/military
