On the Verge (Or, The Geography of Yearning)
hiSTORYstage presents Eric Overmyer's chimerical comedy, On The Verge, for two weeks of performances at North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre.  

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?

In the play there is wit within the palaver. As one traveler says, `I have seen the future and it is slang'. The author himself is an ecologist of language and a shrewd observer of our quest to control our environment and the environment of others.
