Sofia was recently hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency – and clearly, she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. And while they painstakingly stumble toward enlightenment, someone keeps mugging Eva in the kitchen. An outrageous comedy about the absurdity – and the danger – of a world where some people’s feelings matter more than others’.

“On the Verge; or The Geography of Yearning”

Sunday, April 10, 3 p.m.

A mirthful safari leading from highest Himalaya to terra incognita, spinning into time travel and blending Tom Stoppard’s limber linguistics with Thornton Wilder’s historic overview. “Three ‘sister sojourners,’ each a prototypical Victorian lady explorer equipped with dialogue as pithy as their helmets, thwack their machetes through the wilderness while telling tales of past jaunts among the natives. As intrepid trekkers, they put the lie to any charge that they are representatives of a weaker sex. Mr. Overmyer has written a play that is joyfully profeminist.”—The New York Times
