About the event

Mosaic  Players will be presenting On the Verge or The Geography of Yearning, a  chimerical comedy by Eric Overmyer (playwright and television  producer/writer) on September 25th, 26th, October 2nd, and 3rd at 2 pm  at the Antioch Township Center.

On the Verge 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 casts available for 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;  Jamie Lee and Bonnie Hart play 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  artistic team for On the Verge is led by Director Rebecca Zellar.   

The  Antioch Township Center is located at 1625 Deep Lake Road in Lake  Villa, IL.  Performances begin at 2 pm. The performances are free to the  public with a suggested donation of $20.00.  If you would like to  donate to the Mosaic Players, please visit

Seating is limited, so please contact Rebecca Zellar at or 773-610-9249 to reserve your space.
