Special event!  Final details are still pending, but we are hoping to attend the dress rehearsal for the play Wit being put on by Jesuit High School.  The student cast would like to have a Q&A session with us following the rehearsal.  Wit is about Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned professor of English, who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. During the course of her illness she comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity and humor that are transformative both for her and the audience.
