What is W;t Broadway Play by Margaret Edson?

“W;t,” pronounced as “Wit,” is a Pulitzer Prize-winning play written by Margaret Edson. The play premiered in 1995 and explores profound themes related to life, death, and the human experience.

The central character is Vivian Bearing, a renowned and rigorous literary scholar specializing in the Holy Sonnets of John Donne. The play unfolds as Vivian reflects on her life and confronts her own mortality after being diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. The narrative weaves between her past experiences, academic career, and the challenges she faces in the hospital as a patient.

“W;t” is known for its intellectual depth, emotional resonance, and exploration of the complexities of human existence. Margaret Edson’s play has been praised for its poignant and thought-provoking exploration of themes such as the meaning of life, the pursuit of knowledge, and the inevitability of death.

The play has had successful productions both on and off-Broadway, earning Margaret Edson the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1999. It continues to be regarded as a powerful and impactful work in the world of contemporary theater.

Nixon is no stranger to the Thespian world, she is a Tony-wielding mega-super-force to be reckoned with having won for her portrayal in David Lindsay-Abaire’s Rabbit Hole (that is, pre-Nicole Kidman film version, of course). Early next year, Cynthia Nixon will cake on her Ben Nye yet again to star in Margaret Edson’s W;t (or Wit) which garnered a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1999. Holler!

“W;t” draws inspiration from playwright, Margaret Edson, and her time working in a hospital. Edson spun her experience into an undoubtedly fine piece of heart wrenching theatre where our poetic protagonist is dying of ovarian cancer. The play recounts the tale of Dr. Vivian Bearing, an English professor, and her battle with her cancerous overtaking as she recalls the memoirs of her battle in the last hours of her life.

Now, let’s just say this play is not for the faint of heart. It will make you cry. It will make you sad. It will make you angry. Most importantly, W;t is a universal tale for anyone has battled cancer or for those of us who have lost someone to the battle.

The melancholic state of mind that this play induces circumvents themes of life, death, poetry, pain, and the choices one must make in his or her life. I’m sure that Cynthia Nixon will portray this role with pure and raw emotional outpourings. W;t will be in previews starting January 5, 2012 at Manhattan Theater Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
