Overmyer's On the Verge features actors Julie Baber, Cliff Campbell, Nina Morrison, and Johanna Weller-Fahy. Nytheatre.com's reviewer Richard Hinojosa states that in WOW Café Theatre's Sonofabitch Stew "...it is Julie Baber, as the narrator, who steals the night. Her performance is flawless." Baber also performed in Austin Pendleton's The Children's Hour, and Pendleton states, "Julie is an amazing actress, as gifted and, more important, accomplished as anyone her age I've worked with. You've got to see her." Nytheatre.com reviewer Akia Squitieri states that Cliff Campbell "...has smart comedic timing and knows just when to pull back and when to push forward ...."
Designers and production team include director Portia Krieger, assistant director Joey Delbuono, stage manager Ashley Kosier, costume designer Denise Maroney, set designer Leslie Delavan, lighting designer Scott Needham, and sound designer Louis Igoe. Amanda Charlton from Williamstown Theatre Festival states that Portia Krieger is "...inventive, imaginative, and in constant search of that which best serves the story of the play." Ron Russell, the Director and Founding Producer of EPIC Theatre Center states that Krieger is "...a director whose potential is limited only by the quality of the community in which she works."

The piece explores the ways in which self-perception is created by others. The women have, ironically, spent much of their lives wishing to have the qualities and traits of the other person. They find themselves in an apartment, vying for the attention of a single man but end up confronting each other and their own deep-seated issues. Is hell really other people or just yourself?
Alice will be played by Joyce Wu, Greg by Evan Shafran and Krista by Amy Ludwigsen. The director is Genevieve Gearhart, lighting design is by Parker Pracjek.
Directed By - Genevieve Gearhart
Faces...Voices is a triptych of three one-act plays written as an ensemble to convey the depth of victims' suffering and courageous spirit beyond abstract media reports. While the narrative and characters are entirely fictional, the ensemble, Faces... Voices, alludes to actual cases of hate crimes, known to scar victims as a direct attack on their personal identity.
The stories portrayed in Faces... Voices, were derived from a shooting death of a gay man by a young religious fanatic, a rash of rapes against lesbians in Brooklyn, New York, and Amnesty International reports of human rights abuses against the transgender population in Latin America.
Where such acts of violence are considered "message crimes," these productions of Faces... Voices are intended to delve into the often socially-sanctioned nature and attitudes surrounding such bias-related crime.
The week begins with Unraveling Diana by Karen Weinberg on Thursday April 7. A comedy about life, love, and what it's like to be a lesbian working at a synagogue, Unraveling Diana is directed by Julian Ringel.
Friday, April 8th is a double bill. Portia Krieger directs Nina Morrison's EmergencE, a play about the ultimate dysfunctional family as seen through the eyes of their nine-year-old son, and Ms. Morrison directs Andy's Bridal by Sara Jeanne Asselin. Two women work alone in a bridal shop day in and day out - but nobody seems to be getting married.
The first week of the festival will end with The Wire by Leah Ryan on Saturday, April 9. Directed by Ed Cheetum, The Wire is the story of the demise of the fabulous tightrope-walking Bakolini family.
Week two will feature a reading of Pulp, on Thursday April 14, Friday April 15, and Saturday April 16, an irreverent comedy cabaret that serves as a sexy homage to the sultry, jazzy world of 1950's lesbian pulp fiction. The show features music by Amy Warren and Andre Pluess, book and lyrics by Patricia Kane and direction by Eric Snydor.
The Triple Threat festival concludes with a fully staged production of The Just by Albert Camus, translated by Suzanne M. Saunders and directed by Julie Baber on Thursday April 21, Friday April 22, and Saturday April 23. Five revolutionaries must choose between their love for life and the death that will free the people. The cast features Amber Gray, Elizabeth Day, Caitlin Egleson, Dianna Marino, and Christi Waldron.
