Muscatine Community College Theatre Department presents Eric Overmyer's "On the Verge; or the Geography of Yearning."
In 1888, Mary, Fanny, and Alex, three intrepid women explorers, band together to conquer Terra Incognita, the last unexplored territory. While bushwacking their way through jungles, braving treacherous ice sheets, and negotiating passage across a bottomless gorge, they encounter a chameleonic cannibal, an adorable young Yeti, and a Troll demanding a toll…. as well as a number of mysterious artifacts: egg beaters, dirigibles, political campaign buttons, and newspaper clippings from the 1900s… On this one-way journey through space and time, each lady discovers her own unique destiny in the beautiful, loud, and brightly lit future. Eric Overmyer’s On the Verge, or, The Geography of Yearning is a romping meditation on the outer and inner frontiers of the human condition.
