Though it definitely wasn't the most joyous romp, W;t was a very effective play.
It's definitely informative and eye-opening. Margaret Edson strings you along for its entirety, so by the middle of the play, you really can't feel the difference between you and Dr. Bearing. I enjoyed how, like Anna in the Tropics, she relies on the written word to ease her mind, and essentially reflect the themes that are already present.
