Mel Gusow of The New York Times says On The Verge is a “frolicsome jaunt through a continuum of space, time, history, geography, feminism and fashion.”

Overmyer’s comedy, On The Verge, tells the story of three ‘sister sojourners”, each a prototypical Victorian lady explorer, equipped with dialog at pithy as their helmets, as they thwack their machetes through the wilderness while telling tales of past jaunts among the natives.
