This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama about a woman who discovers the value of love and human kindness is the story of Professor Vivian Bearing, a John Donne scholar, who has terminal ovarian cancer and finds her own humanity in her mortality. It’s a play about the search for love and knowledge — a story told with humour, honesty and wit. (
