When wallflower Charlie Baker goes on a getaway to a fishing lodge in Georgia, all he wants is peace and quiet. He can't avoid the other guests, though, so a helpful friend "saves" him by claiming he is a foreigner who cannot speak or understand English. Comedy ensues as everyone unwittingly reveals their secrets and scandals to Charlie, thinking he can't understand. What started as a serene getaway becomes a hive of drama and intrigue in this exceedingly clever and outrageously funny farce. Learn More

"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.
