Presents: A Public Reading Of An Unproduced Screenplay About The Death Of Walt Disney
Written by Lucas Hnath

Walt would like to read you a story. It’s a story he wrote about himself, and the empire he made, and the city of the future he’s building that will change everything. It’s about his brother, and it’s about everyone, and how they all love him, and how they’ll all miss him so much when he’s gone. ...Right? Lucas Hnath’s A Public Reading is a darkly comic inversion of the Walt Disney persona, a funny and moving meditation on fame, legacy, and the things, and people, you leave behind.

Death is at Your Doorstep, What Will Be Your Legacy?

“Death, be not proud…” The winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Margaret Edson’s Wit is an honest, unflinching look at the last months of a cancer patient’s life. English professor Vivian Bearing is proud, intelligent, and dying of stage IV ovarian cancer. Facing down an experimental treatment that may prolong her life, Dr. Bearing reflects on her life and condition through the intricacies of the English language and the Holy Sonnets of John Donne. At times humorous, at times devastating, Wit is one of a kind.
