"Wit”, which won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for drama, comes to Burlington thanks to another woman named Vivian — Vivian Jordan, a Shelburne resident who plays the lead role and whose profession merges the performing arts with the medical arts. Jordan works at the hospital as a “standardized patient,” which means she acts out roles for medical students learning how to diagnose illnesses. It brings awareness of end-of-life issues and spark discussion on the complex nature of dying in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
