"I should have asked more questions," Vivian Bearing ruefully says at the start of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Wit. "I know there's going to be a test." Until now, this self-absorbed world-class scholar has studied John Donne's poems on death and God with the professional detachment of someone who never expected to encounter either of them directly. But when faced with her own truly final examination, at the end of stage-four ovarian cancer, Bearing has little time left to reassess her humanity or the emotional and intellectual blockades she's lived her life behind. Broadway actor Judy McLane stars in NC Theatre's production of this frank, compassionate work. —Byron Woods
