The controversial Extremities finds a serial rapist stalking and attacking a woman alone in her home. In a reversal of power she turns the tables on her assailant and would-be rapist, gaining the upper-hand. But once she's wrested control of the situation she must decide whether to release him and risk the possibility of him committing a similar crime, to go to the police and possibly be accused of lying ... or to kill him. This provocative play by William Mastrosimone premiered off-Broadway in 1982 with Susan Sarandon and James Russo, and was later made into a movie starring Farrah Fawcett. Come see what USA Today once referred to as "a white-knuckle psychological thriller," in the dark confines of The Abyss Theatre, where the complimentary glass of wine that comes with your ticket can hopefully help soothe your frazzled nerves.
