Wit coming to Manatee Performing Arts Center

(FEBRUARY 23rd – MARCH 12th, 2017)

(BRADENTON, February 16th, 2017) The Manatee Players’ is proud to present Wit as part of their 2016 – 2017 Action through Acting series in Bradenton Kiwanis Studio Theater running February 23rd – March 12th, 2017. This production is in affiliation with Manatee Memorial Hospital as part of The Manatee Players’ Action through Acting initiative designed to build community awareness and give socially relevant issues through live theatrical productions.

Wit is a one-act play written by American playwright Margaret Edson, which won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Edson used her work experience in a hospital as part of the inspiration for her play

The action of the play takes place during the final hours of Dr. Vivian Bearing, a university professor of English, dying of ovarian cancer. She recalls the initial diagnosis of Stage IV metastatic ovarian cancer from her oncologist, Dr. Harvey Kelekian. Dr. Kelekian then proposes an experimental chemotherapeutic treatment regimen consisting of eight rounds at full dosage.
