Lipscomb Theatre presents Eric Overmyer’s On the Verge, running Feb. 16-25 in Shamblin Theatre.
Within this chimerical comedy, three Victorian lady explorers set out on an adventure that takes them to darkest Africa, highest Himalaya and Terra Incognita. 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 explorers can accommodate themselves to any emergency (natural or man-made), although they are momentarily disoriented as they approach modern times. A frolicsome jaunt through a continuum of space, time, history, geography, feminism and fashion, On the Verge is a thoroughly serendipitous journey.
Tickets are regularly $15 for adults, $12 for university faculty/staff and $5 for students per show. For tickets, contact the Lipscomb Box Office at 615.966.7075.
