WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In Eric Overmyer's chimerical new comedy, three Victorian lady explorers set out on an adventure that takes them to darkest Africa, highest Himalaya and Terra Incognita....Mr 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. These intrepid trekker are heroines to their heart--explorers who can accommodate themselves to any emergency (natural or man-made). In their kaleidoscopic adventure, they journey through a rain forest of hundreds of artifacts from the future household utensils, mechanical contrivances and our modern world.
