Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“A frolicsome jaunt through a continuum of space, time, history, geography, feminism and fashion… a thoroughly serendipitous journey.” —New York Times
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company presents On the Verge, or The Geography of Yearning, a fanciful comedy about three women explorers. Brave, willing and yearning to see it all, these women enthusiastically begin their trek to Terra Incognita in 1888, only to discover that they are adrift in time. The playwright crafts a linguistic labyrinth for his heroines as they navigate through uncharted territory populated with pop culture and possibility.
