LIFE: The work of John Donne.
CANCER: Ovarian; aggressively metastatic.
This award-winning play stretches one woman's emotional solitude in the long journey through cancer. Professor Vivian Bearing undergoes chemotherapy that drains her of all energy and reserve. As the treatment and tumours progress, Vivian comes to depend on simple human kindness, and reassesses with profundity and humour, the principles which guided her life.
