On the Verge follows the adventures of three Victorian women explorers into what they believe to be Terra Incognita, a new, unexplored land.  Blending Tom Stoppard's limber linguistics with the historic overview of a Thornton Wilder, Mr Overmyer takes his audience on a mirthful safari...spinning into time travel.

The play is directed by Don Jordan and will feature local actors Justina Trova, Wendy Walraven, Jennifer Mattern and Todd Hamilton.
