Catawba Theater presents ‘On The Verge’

An evening of traveling through time

Continuing its 2015-16 season, Catawba Theatre Arts Department presents Eric Overmeyer’s hit comedy “On the Verge; or The Geography of Yearning.”

Performances begin Tuesday, Sept. 22 and run through Saturday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Hedrick Little Theatre, with a special opening night reception following Tuesday’s performance.

The production, directed by new associate professor Kindra Steenerson, spins the tale of three late 19th century female explorers as they traverse Terra Incognita in a symbolic journey through time.

The characters include the adventurous Mary Baltimore (Anna Katherine Hall, Asheville), the young and enthusiastic Alexandra Cafuffle (Prentice Clark, Charleston, S.C.),

the conservative Fanny Cranberry (Madeline Auchter, Houston, Texas), and eight other colorful characters played by one male actor (Randy Stull, Frederick, Md.).

Steenerson says, “The style is a challenge in that it is a linguistic feat … as the ladies travel through the changing landscape, the geography of language changes as well. As the characters negotiate the shifts in time, space, and language, they confront what it means to find purpose, understand yearning, and know themselves.”

Join the journey and embrace the unknown — tickets are $12 general admission and $10 for non-Catawba students/senior citizens. Call 703-637-4481 weekdays between 1 and 5 p.m. or visit www.catawba.edu/theatretix
