This is a play about the meaning of life and how fast unexpectedly death can overtake us. The main character is diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer and begins chemotherapy with a harsh experimental drug. While her body weakens, she examines the path she walked in life and the choices she made. As a college professor of the poems of John Donne (death be not proud), she was one of the most feared teachers on her campus. This is a great story. I really enjoyed reading it. There is also a HBO special that closely follows this play.
