Clarksville High School Theatre Opens its 2010-2011 Season

 

Clarksville High School WildcatsClarksville, TN – The Clarksville High School Theatre opens its 2010-11 theatre season tonight with Margaret Edson’s powerful play WIT. This year, director Barbara Wesner has chosen a mature, moving drama that chronicles and celebrates the life of Vivian Bearing, a noted English professor of the seventeenth-century metaphysical poet John Donne.

At the rise of the play, Bearing steps to the edge of the stage and informs the audience that she has been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic ovarian cancer. She continues by saying, “It is not my intention to give away the plot, but I think I die at the end. They’ve given me less than two hours.”

Senior students Grace Mason (in hospital bed) and Samantha Bagwell star in Margaret Edson’s powerful play, “WIT.”
