Theatre/Sewanee will present On The Verge, a comedy by Eric Overmyer, Wednesday through Saturday, April 23-26, at 7:30 p.m. CT with a Sunday matinee on April 27 at 2 p.m. CT in the Tennessee Williams Center. Admission is free.
The play is directed by senior theatre major Beckett Scott with scenery and lighting by senior theatre major Andy Philpo and costumes by senior history major Derek Williams.
Mary Morrison is the production stage manager with John Marshall as technical director.
In On The Verge, three Victorian lady explorers, played by Elise Anderson, Sarah High, and Pagie Wilson, set out on an adventure that takes them to darkest Africa, highest Himalaya, and Terra Incognita, where they encounter a number of fascinating chimera and alarming characters, all played by Hyatt Pyle and Cody Snead. Heroines to their heart, the explorers can accommodate themselves to any emergency, natural or manmade.
Eric Overmyer’s On The Verge is a “frolicsome jaunt through a continuum of space, time, history, geography, feminism, and fashion . . .a thoroughly serendipitous journey,” according to New York Times critic Mel Gussow.
