Extremities theatre production

The Truman State Department of Theatre presents EXTREMITIES by William Mastrosimone.

This incredibly gripping drama portrays the act of rape and its aftermath as the victim turns the tables on her attacker, reaching a climax of fever pitch suspense.

Marjorie is home alone when Raul enters through her unlocked door and attempts to attack and rape her. The tables turn when Marjorie is able to subdue Raul and keep him tied up in her fireplace. When Terry and Patricia, Marjorie’s roommates, come home, they are shocked and begin discussing how to handle the situation: call the police or take matters into their own hands?
