Beginning this evening, the Communications Media Department will present its production of William Mastrosimon’s celebrated play Extremities. The play is inspired by the fantasy of taking control back from an attacker, and examines the extremes of human capacity: mercy against hatred, compassion against violence, and humanity against torture. The university’s production is directed by Professor Mary Vreeland. Extremities will be performed in the Wallace Theater for the Performing Arts at the McKay Complex at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 18; Wednesday, April 19; Thursday, April 20; Friday, April 21; and Saturday, April 22. There will be matinee performances at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23. Learn more about the production here.
