Current Production

On The Verge (Or, The Geography of Yearning)
July 24 - August 3, 2014
North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre, Raleigh, NC

The production, directed by Rebecca Blum, features three `sister sojourners', each a prototypical Victorian lady explorer, equipped with dialog as pithy as their helmets, thwacking their machetes through the wilderness while telling tales of past jaunts among the natives. As intrepid trekkers, they put the lie to any charge that they are representatives of a weaker sex.  Heroines to their heart, the explorers can accommodate themselves to any emergency (natural or man-made), although they are momentarily disoriented as they approach modern times. In their kaleidoscopic adventure, they journey through a rain forest of hundreds of artifacts from the future: household utensils, mechanical contrivances, and a side-view automobile mirror that reads `Objects in mirror may be closer than they appear'. How does one deal with such a chimera?

On The Verge comes from the pen of Eric Overmyer, best known for his writing on The Wire and HBO's Treme, which he co-created.  He was honored in 2008 by the Writer's Guilde of America for Outstanding Dramatic Series in recognition for his work on The Wire.
