Women on the Edge (by Karoline Bethea-Jones) is a dramatic stage play, depicting the lives of 10 women who find themselves on the brink of self-actualization concerning their past or present relationships. Weaving together distinct tales for each woman, the play opens with four young women discussing their emotions as they reminisce about love lost and ends with all the women finding fulfillment when they come to the aid of a troubled Sara, who after many years of abuse, has finally taken matters into her own hands.
What lies between is the sharing of stories about being on the verge of a breakthrough or a breakdown, expressed through monologue, prose, poetry, song and interpretive dance. Women on the Edge is a strikingly vivid reminder that before you can have a loving relationship with someone else, you must first form a loving relationship with your inner and spiritual self.
Uplifting and poignant, this play goes back to the basics and shows how the bonding of women - young and old - is as crucial to development as air, food and water. Women on the Edge breathes life into the notion that united we stand, divided we fall.
Karoline Bethea-Jones has brought her book of short stories to life with the stage play Women on the Edge, sure to please audiences of any age just as the book did upon its release. There is a lesson to be learned from each of the women in the play so that our own lives can be lived more fulfilling and less on edge.
