Margaret Edson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Wit runs January 20-February 12.

STC's Season Eight - themed By & About: Women in Contemporary Theatre - will present Margaret Edson's powerful drama  Wit as the next main stage offering.

Termed "moving, funny, and wise" by the London Times and "among the finest plays of the decade" by The Wall Street Journal,  Wit is a poignant look at love and knowledge, grace and redemption, and living and dying. 

In 1999,  Wit won both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics' Circle's Best New Play award.  

It has been called "exquisite...exhilarating, and harrowing" by Newsday..."moving, enthralling, and challenging" by the New York Daily News...and "a one-of-a-kind experience: wise, thoughtful, witty and wrenching" by The New York Times.  

"A dazzling and humane play you will remember till your dying day," raved John Simon of New York magazine.
Wit features Stephen Cooper of Marblehead, Seby Konarski of Middleton, Mitch Kyle, Andrew Winson, Paul Morin, and Sue Kirby of Salem, Mary Niederkorn of Needham, Cheryl Quinones of Swampscott, and Libby Schap of Newton

Wit at the Salem Theatre Company, 90 Lafayette Street, performs January 20 - February 12, Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3:00pm.
