Le Moyne College Presents Eric Overmyer's "On the Verge" at the W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release)… Le Moyne College’s Theatre Arts Program goes on an expedition with On The Verge (Or The Geography of Yearning) written by Eric Overmyer. Performance schedule is as follows:

Thursday, April 7: 8 p.m.
Friday, April 8: 8 p.m.
Saturday, April 9: 8 p.m.

Equipped with optimism, humor and terribly large vocabularies, three Victorian lady explorers set off on an expedition to Terra Incognita, only to find that Terra Incognita is pushing them through time as well as space. Armed with their umbrellas and backpacks the trio encounters a Vegas lounge singer, Mr. Coffee, a Yeti, Cool Whip and a 1950s presidential campaign.

Playwright Eric Overmyer is best known as a writer and producer for such acclaimed television series as “Treme,” “The Wire,” “Homicide: Life on the Street,” “New Amsterdam,” “St. Elsewhere,” “Law & Order,” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” His plays include Native Speech, In a Pig’s Valise, In Perpetuity Throughout the Universe, Mi Familia Tropicano, Mi Vida Loca, Dark Rapture and The Heliotrope Bouquet, among others. He is the recipient of the Le Comte de Nouy Award for playwriting, a McKnight Fellowship, and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship.

This Le Moyne College production of On the Verge will be under the direction of Professor Michael Barbour. Michael Blagys provides light design with scenic design by Tyler Sperrazza and Casey Hunter. Costume design provided by Meggan Camp.
