Seven pioneer women gather to socialize as they sew a quilt in Quilters. A quilt comes together scrap by scrap, piece by piece, in this unique expression of folk art where each patch makes up a facet -- girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness and death -- of a complete tableau. Quilters, a musical with book, music and lyrics by Barbara Damashek, was nominated for the Tony Award for best musical of 1985 and has been a popular favorite in theaters across the country.

"Wit" is indeed witty, funny at times, and by turns visceral, tragic, and beautiful. Capably supported by fine actors,including local legends Jim Chovick and Sylvia M’Lafi Thompson, and a notably tender, sensitive turn by Cynthia Gerber, it is Deborah Gilmour Smyth's amazing (even devastating) portrayal of Professor ("Doctor of Philosophy") Vivian Bearing on which the entire play rests. As a devoted theatregoer I must say that hers is one of the most honest, hard-to-watch-yet-harder-to-turn-away-from performances I've ever had both the pleasure and pain to see.
