On the Verge, or, The Geography of Yearning, directed by Molly Lyons, is a mesmerizing tale of three women who join forces to explore and conquer Terra Incognita, the last and most mysterious of unexplored territories. As they journey, they reminisce about past adventures and mediate on the outer and inner frontiers of what it means to be human.
Guest Director Lyons is excited to bring the imaginative work of the playwright, Eric Overmyer, to life. “I have loved this play for a long time and am thrilled to be directing it.” Lyons brings her many years of experience as an actor and director to the play to create a wonderful theatrical experience. “As a classical director and actor, the rich language is heaven.” She further reveals that “As an artist, bending tradition is always exciting.”
