A professor dying of cancer becomes the subject of research in Wit, which Centerstage will present beginning tomorrow.

Wit will take place on Feb. 13, 15, 17, 20, and 22 at 7:30 p.m. each night. Shows on Feb. 16 will occur at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Also, shows on Feb. 23 are to happen at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. All performances will go on at the Jewish Community Center of Louisville, located at 3600 Dutchmans Lane near the Highlands.

Tickets for each show are $18 in advance and $20 at the door. All tickets can be purchased at the door, by calling JCC of Louisville at 502-459-0660, or going to the Centerstage website.

A brilliant poetry professor becomes the subject of research in Wit. Dr. Vivian Bearing, a professor who is now battling cancer, recounts how she arrived at this point. She also has to handle the various aspects of research, which the doctors may be administering for reasons other than trying to help her.

Margaret Edson created the production, which is based partly on her experiences in a hospital. Wit earned Edson the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1999.

Following Wit, Centerstage will present auditions for its 2014-15 season. Auditions are to happen in March.
