Pulitzer-winning pathos

Theatre impresario and director Nellie Cravens returns to the boards in a staged reading of “Wit,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning one-act play by Margaret Edson, on April 29 and 30. “I haven’t done much acting lately, and I miss it,” Cravens said. “This gives me a chance to strut my stuff a little.”

As an English professor undergoing experimental chemotherapy, Cravens’ character reassesses her life and her work as emotional reality replaces intellectual exercise.

Very interesting and very moving, Cravens says, but not without moments of humor. Directed by Butch Engles and featuring Richard Thompson, Rhonda Guaraglia, and Alexis Long. 7 p.m. $14. 938.4626. Svbo.org.
