Marjorie Lyons Playhouse Presents Eric Overmeyer's On the Verge, or the Geography of Yearning

Shreveport, LA — Centenary College's Marjorie Lyons Playhouse opens Eric Overmeyer's On the Verge, or the Geography of Yearning on September 27. The play will be the directorial debut of new Assistant Professor of Theatre Emily Heugatter-Mathias.

The women encounter a kaleidoscope of characters as they trek through jungles, beaches, and a dizzying ice storm, satisfying their need for adventure in a journey of discovery. Yearning to encounter the unknown, converge with the future, and heighten the senses, these three women are on the verge.

The cast includes Kalah Roberts as Mary, Rachael Lee Magill as Alex, Savannah Baggerly as Fanny, and introduces Scott Gibbs.
