The title Wit is also sometimes spelled W;t. The use of the semicolon refers to the usage of the semicolon in John Donne's Holy Sonnets; Vivian Bearing, the play's main character, is a scholar of Donne's work and recites his holy sonnets throughout the play. The play was adapted into a film in 2001 under the same title and was staged on Broadway in 2012.
