About the event

Mosaic  Players and the Lake Villa District Library will be presenting On the  Verge or The Geography of Yearning, a chimerical comedy by Eric Overmyer  (playwright and television producer/writer) on Sunday, September 19th  at the Lake Villa District Library.

On  the Verge, directed by Rebecca Zellar, follows three Victorian era female explorers as they discover  "Terra Incognita" and later realize they're actually traveling forward  through time into the 21st century. The independent and intrepid  explorers encounter eight diverse beings throughout their journeys, all  played by the same actor.

There  are two different casts available for different performances. Meghan  Lane and Susie Perkowitz play Mary, a woman who considers travel her  unequivocal calling; Jennifer Drinka and Cristianna Formeller play  Fanny, the most socially, politically, and morally conservative member  of the group; Bonnie Hart plays Alex, who is enthralled by  new discoveries; and Chris Riter and Josh Formeller play eight  different characters ranging from Fanny's husband, Grover, to a Yeti in  the Himalayas.

The  Lake Villa District Libary is located at 140 N. Munn Road in  Lindenhurst, IL and the performances will be at 2 pm. The performances  are free to the public.
