Austin Scottish Rite Theater and The Final Acts Project team up to bring Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play WIT to the Scottish Rite stage August 10-25, 2018.
This smart dramatic comedy is about a woman who comes face-to-face with herself as she battles ovarian cancer. The show resonates with themes around human relationships, mortality and end-of-life agency.
Each show will be followed by a discussion with guest speakers from the health professions.
