Wit (W;t)

Having gotten "into" theatre, my world of reading interests has greatly expanded. Almost routinely now I'll order scripts to read when plays come around that I know nothing about. "Wit" is one of these. I just finished it last night (pretty quick read). As the playwright herself puts it, "The play is not about doctors or even about cancer. It's about kindness, but it shows arrogance. It's about compassion, but it shows insensitivity." It's pretty heavy but has its light moments. And guess what? It's witty! The SLO Little Theatre will be running this show April 29 – May 15, 2016.
