Q-TIPS SAY: WOW! What an outstanding performance by Ms. Edson and the supporting cast. The range of emotions shine in this production of WIT. Mrs. Q says: Having gone through a bout of cancer herself, she could easily relate to the range of emotions that were portrayed in this play. In the end it is how we treat one another at the end and during our life. A simple thing of stopping by or a phone call, text to say Hi can be such a welcome act of kindness and friendship. Yes, there is some humor, kindness, compassion, but most important is that we enter and exit (and we all most exit) this life alone – or must we be so alone at the end? We do exit alone but we can have others around for support prior to the final exit. Is it a choice or not? Is is because of how we lived our lives that there is no one around when we pass on? Loved it but not sure it is for everyone since in general we are so uncomfortable about suffering and dying. Alice in Chicago and Fl
