Limits of Wit --- 9/206

 Walk: Presidio Pickleball, Trader Joe's, Pet Express                                                                                        Distance: 5.4 miles, 90 minutes pickleball, yoga stretch

So the 4th week of Ciwt's Zoom Contemporary Theater class features another Pulitzer winning play.

As you can see from the 'witty' title of the book, the play is entitled W;t or actually Wit.  And it needs every bit of its highly intelligent, exceedingly clever wit to balance the raw and chilling portrayal of the coldly clinical and utterly impersonal way dying patients are treated in a hospital setting.  This against the excruciatingly deep, lonely and personal journey the dying person must take.

Not uplifting for Ciwt.
