Wit: A Play

All in all, a decent read. This is the first thing she ever wrote. In fact, it's the only thing she's ever written except for one other play a few years ago that hasn't ever been staged.

And this is what came out. At the beginning of play she is diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer there is no stage 5. The only treatment is a research protocol of a combination of drugs over 8 months. The drugs have "pernicious" side effects and she is warned she will have to be tough to take the full course. Well, Vivian Bearing is nothing if not tough.

She has chosen as her life's work the study of a poet who can "tie your brain in knots" while trying to understand him. She has been ruthless in the use of her considerable wit in trying to inculcate the ability for analysis and the precision of language in her students. Empathy has not been one of her attributes, but now as she is dying, she wishes her doctors could show some for her.

Her primary nurse, Susie Monahan, is both competent and empathetic and becomes her lifeline in the hospital as she is regarded by the research doctors to be just a fascinating experiment. Her ex student, Jason, the research fellow sums up her study of Donne. He says Donne was suffering from "Salvation Anxiety You know you're a sinner. And there's this promise of salvation, the whole religious thing It just doesn't stand up to scrutiny. But you can't face life without it So you write these screwed up sonnets.
