In the end, when the various patches are assembled into one glorious, brilliantly colorful quilt, the effect is both breathtaking and magical-and a theatrical masterstroke which will linger in the mind and memory long after the house lights have dimmed.

In Eric Overmyer's existential comedy, three Victorian lady explorers set out on an adventure that takes them to darkest Africa, highest Himalaya and Terra Incognita.... With linguistics and an astonishing historic overview, Overmyer takes his audience on a mirthful safari...spinning into time travel. Three `sister sojourners', each a prototypical Victorian lady explorer, equipped with dialog as pithy as their helmets, thwack 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 and On the Verge is joyfully feminist.
