Eric Overmyer’s whimsical comedy, set at the end of the 19th-century, features three intrepid lady explorers who have set out for Terra Incognita. Equipped with pith helmets and journals in which to record their discoveries, they bushwhack and ice-axe their way across the unknown. They begin to get glimmerings of a new civilization: but what is meant by Cool Whip? Will they meet the elusive Mr. Coffee?
Little by little the ladies discover that they are trekking into the future, a place mapped with a whole new vocabulary and is full of surprises.
The Center for the Arts is located on the Albright College campus at 13th and Bern Streets, Reading, Pa. For more information or disabled assistance, please call 610-921-7715, or visit
