on The Verge (or The geogrAPhY of YeArning)* By Eric Overmyer Troutt Theater Follow the adventures of three Victorian era female explorers as they travel into what they believe to be Terra Incognita, a new, unexplored land. Equipped with dialog as pithy as their helmets, they can accommodate themselves to any emergency, dispelling any charge that they are representatives of a weaker sex. As the ladies progress on their travels it becomes apparent that they are traveling through more than a jungle, but through a continuum of space, time, history, geography, feminism and fashion. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for faculty, staff, senior citizens and non-Belmont students, and free for Belmont students.

Show dates and times: Thursday, February 14 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 16 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, February 17 at 2 p.m. Thursday, February 21 at 7:30 p.m. Friday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 23 TBA Sunday, February 24 at 2 p.m.
