Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the intricate, difficult Holy Sonnets of John Donne, is diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. Confident of her ability to stay in control of events, she brings to her illness the same intensely rational and painstakingly methodical approach that has guided her stellar academic career. But as her disease and her stint as a prize patient in an experimental chemotherapy program inexorably progress, Vivian comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity, humor, and wit that are transformative.
The play features Theatre B Ensemble Member Carrie Wintersteen, with Charles Newman, Matthew Collie, Meg Bartholomay, Mary Cochran, Mike Sunram, Caitlin O’Connell, and Stacey Ann Schulte rounding out the ensemble.
