TAPIT/new works Ensemble Theater is bringing its production of Wit & Wisdom: Monologues of Ruth Draper to the The Winnebago Cafe following a sold-out run at Madison’s Overture Center in October.

A solo performer long before it was cool, this production showcases Draper’s evergreen understanding of the human experience and her wicked sense of humor. Audiences will visit a class in “Greek Poise,” follow the latest trends in doctors and diets, and, in general, learn more about Draper’s characters than they know about themselves.

Wit & Wisdom features a top-notch cast of 8 Madison-based female actors; Pam Adams, Liz Light, Krystal Lonsdale, Kiki Moritsugu, Jody Reiss, Peggy Rosin, and Danielle Dresden and Donna Peckett, of TAPIT/new works Ensemble Theater.

Company Foundation; the Evjue Foundation, Inc., charitable arm of The Capital Times; the W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation; the Pleasant T.
