"Extremities" April 2007



Extremities

The play is about a young woman named Marjorie who is attacked in her home by a would-be rapist. She manages to turn the tables on him, tying him up in her fireplace. Her roommates come home to discover Raul tied with cords, belts and other household items.
Terry and Patricia, the roommates, portray different points of view about rape within society. Terry, a rape victim when she was a teenager, believes that Raul will not be convicted since a rape did not occur and there is no proof. Patricia believes in the judicial system and insists on calling the cops.
The three friends are also turned on each other at various points in the play, due to Raul's knowledge of each of them through stalking them. This play was first performed on Broadway in 1982 and was subsequently made into a successful film starring Farrah Fawcett. The play was directed by John Duggan who also starred as Raul.
