On the Verge
by Eric Overmyer
directed by Rosalind Phelps
May 28–June 7
Three intrepid lady explorers embark on their greatest adventure yet: an expedition into the last uncharted jungle in the world, Terra Incognita. Little do they know they are 'on the verge' of a deliciously verbose, joyously feminist, and ultimately serendipitous romp through time. Armed with their pith helmets and journals, our heroines encounter treacherous obstacles, several eccentric characters, and a myriad of pop culture references. Eric Overmyer's play turns colonialist anthropology on its head; celebrating friendship, egg beaters, and "discovery" of all kinds.
Director, and outgoing President of the Undergraduate Theater Society, Rosalind Phelps reflects on her time at the School of Drama and her "make it as you go" mindset. Read Rosalind's post on the Drama blog.
