In collaboration with Hollywood writer William Mastrosimone, DreamScope Theatre brings to you An All India Premier of the Oscar Winning Play EXTREMITIES.
Set in present-day, Extremities is every woman’s worst nightmare. A young woman, Marjorie, is attacked in her home by a would-be rapist, Raul; she manages to turn the tables on him, tying him up in her fireplace. Her roommates come home to discover the attacker bound with cords, belts and other household items.
Terry and Patricia, the roommates, express different points of view about rape in society. Terry, a rape victim herself as a teenager, believes that Raul will not be convicted since a rape didn’t actually occur and there is no proof. Patricia believes in the judicial system and insists on calling the police. The three friends also turn on each other at various points in the play, due to Raul’s psychological game plan.
Extremities is a disturbing play on crime against women. Previous performances around the world have incited dramatic reactions from the audience where they have even attempted to save Marjorie from being raped on stage; later realizing that it is only a play. Extremities is not only a psychological drama but an insane piece of art which transcribes human reactions towards serious issues like rape.
