In her 1991 play, Wit, Margaret Edson examines the internal life of an English professor suffering a terminal illness. As the professor nears the end of her life, she starts to ask hard questions about what she did wrong and also what comes next.
The stage play itself has been critically lauded. Before making its way to the New York stage, the show had openings in California and New Haven, Connecticut. Since its debut, Wit has played in stages worldwide and was adapted into an HBO Film. It has won several Emmy, Golden Globe, SAG and Peabody Awards in addition to earning a Pulitzer Prize.
