Spring Drama: A Staged Reading

Spring Drama: A Staged Reading

Enjoy a dramatic presentation of a compelling drama performed by students taking Introduction to Acting at GHC taught and directed by Dr. Andrew Gaines.

About the Play

This Pulitzer-Prize winning play (1999) follows Dr. Vivian Bearing, a fifty-year-old professor of 17th century poetry, recently diagnosed with stage-four metastatic ovarian cancer. Through a nonlinear plot, we witness Vivian’s journey through childhood, career, treatment, and last moments of life. Edson’s W;t artfully draws us in with brilliant dialogue, acerbic humor, and compelling parallels. W;t will be presented as a staged reading by students of Dr. Andrew Gaines enrolled in his introduction to Acting course at Grays Harbor College.
