    Amazing

    I am 15 years old and I found this play astounding. I laughed and cryed throughout the entire story. The story is so very human and meaningful to everyone. this story is touching on many levels to everyone. I would surely recomend this story to anybody. If you or someone you know is going through chemotherapy read this play. Oh and 'How are you feeling today?'

    Poigant & Expressive!

    Edson¿s WIT, is one of the most touching and brilliant plays to have been published. The plays¿ brilliance lies in its plot and stage direction. WIT was also made into a drama special, which aired on HBO a few years back. The amazing performance was led by Emma Thompson, the main character, whom is a Professor struggling with cancer. If you are looking for fantastic real-life drama and something awe inspiring, WIT, is the right choice.

    Sensational Play

    I have read several novels that later are filmed on movies. And I never found the films are half as good as the novels (books) themselves. If you read the book, you could dive into every character's mind, and the impression printed in your head go deeper than what can be seen on the screen; particularly, and understandingly, because films has a limit on duration. But seeing 'Wit' played on HBO, with brilliant acting by Emma Thompson (she deserved two Oscars for this play!), I couldn't imagine if the book itself would be twice as good as the movie. I doubted if such excitement exist at all.

    Wit uplifts

    Margaret Edson's play depicts a brilliant and dedicated but solitary professor of English dealing with ovarian cancer. Her specialization in the metaphysical poetry of John Donne serves her well with its profound meditations on life and death and intellectual wit. The passion the professor shows will uplift any reader or audience member, and will be a special treat to anyone with a passion for literature.

    I loved Wit!

    I saw Wit performed at the Pittsburgh Public Theater and it was fabulous! The acting, the jokes, the story line, the set, the lighting, everything was great!

    Well worth your time...!

    The play is amazing considering this is her first. The author's one very talented wordsmith. I read it in one go since I couldn't get myself to put it down. The conversations are warm, intelligent and sad by turns - all I can really say is that I'm glad some people have the talent to pen such amazing works of art. (I read the play in the store, but couldn't get myself to leave it behind: I ended up buying a copy.)
