Description William Mastrosimone's play tells of an attempted rape. "Watching Extremities is like an emotional assault course. But one normally temperate colleague described it as "filth" while another thought it the most compassionate study of rape he had ever seen. I thought it a good play in that it dramatised a real issue: the dilemma faced by women who are victims of sexual violence." - Michael Billington, The Guardian, London
