Dark and Stormy theater's potent revival of "Extremities," William Mastrosimone's psychologically gnarly one-act, has been extended in Minneapolis. Director Mel Day's visceral and physically disturbing production, which stars James Rodriguez as would-be rapist Raul (right) and Sara Marsh as Marjorie, his would-be victim, has added a week of performances. It will now close Sept. 26.
The well-received show has been selling out, even as audience members fear that the palpable production will disturb their dreams.
The story revolves around a young woman at home who turns the tables on her attacker. Fearing that she will not get justice in the courts, she takes matters into her own hands, even as her roommates (played by Tracey Maloney and Emily Bridges) join the action with pointed questions.
The production plays in an intimate unit at Artspace Grain Belt Warehouse, 77 13th Ave. NE, Studio 202, in Minneapolis. Tickets are available.
