She dies at the end. But Vivian Bearing, PhD of English Literature and famed poetry scholar, doesn’t go down without a fight, volunteering for 8 rounds of painful, experimental treatment to combat late-stage ovarian cancer. W;t takes the audience with her, sharing her fears and revelations, her triumphs and melancholy, her devotion to John Donne’s use of the semi-colon. W;t is that rarest of plays – a Pulitzer-prize winning work of art that challenges both the mind and the spirit. She dies at the end; but not before captivating us with a poignant look at life and death, sickness and poetry.
