Written by Eric Overmyer and directed by Dr. Jeremy Reynolds, On The Verge is the tale of the witty, jaunty escapade of explorers Mary, Alex, and Fanny as they navigate thick jungles and glacial plains, encounter strange new societies, and weave in and out of centuries. The play reveals and celebrates the parallels of human nature that are evident in us all.
