“And death shall be no more, Death, thou shalt not die.” John Donne. Vivian Bearing is a genius level intellect who has gotten very far using only her search for knowledge and sheer force of will. When Vivian is diagnosed with ovarian cancer, she must learn the value of kindness and compassion, that sometimes knowledge is not enough, and that there are more things in heaven and earth that are dreamt of in her philosophy. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, WIT is a play that simply needs to be experienced, it will stay with you long after the final curtain. The Alpha Players are happy to partner with St Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness to raise funds for cancer research. Performances are August 23 at 7:30 PM and August 24 at 2PM and 7:30PM at the Florissant Civic Center Theatre, Parker and Waterford Roads, Florissant, MO 63033. Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York
