In this hilarious time-travel fantasy, three Victorian-era women set off to explore “Terra Incognita,” not realizing that they have warped into 1955 American pop culture. As they tromp through time and the outback of mid-century America, they recount past travels and face their challenges in language rich with wordplay, humor, and the vernacular of anthropologists. Playwright Eric Overmyer’s unique style, thick with lavish wit, made way for his television writing for acclaimed dramas The Wire, Law and Order, and Treme.
“For the linguistically inclined, this ardently alliterative and omnivorously onomatopoetic safari should be difficult to resist.”
