  Wit at Silver Spring Stage


Silver Spring Stage
10145 Colesville Road Silver Spring

Winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize, Margaret Edson's Wit is a remarkable play, both intellectually challenging and emotionally immediate. A renowned professor of English, who's spent years studying and teaching the brilliant and difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne, has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. She applies the aggressively probing and intensely rational approach she takes with poetry to her illness and treatment, with a profundity and humor that are transformative both for her and the audience.

"...Silver Spring Stage’s Wit is a dark and humorous look at the forces of life and death which direct our destiny. Wit is must-see theater at its best."

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...While this play is covered in some pretty hard topics, it is the most honest portrayal of disease, doubt and denial I've ever seen and it offers an honest voice to the experience of those who have suffered in such a way. Grab some tissues but get a ticket. It's definitely worth seeing."
