"Extremities:" strong drama benefits serious subject; opens Aug 16 at Nassau Vineyard By Rosanne Pack An inviting living room wel- comes audience members as they literally enter the set of the drama "Extremities." They will walk across the room and seat them- selves around the set, almost as if they are guests of the actors that will soon occupy the space. But this will not be an amusing, entertaining evening of drawing room theatre. Director Tommye Staley said that she encourages adults to attend the production, but she cannot say, "Sit back and relax." Staley, the founder of the inde- pendent threatre group, Schatte- boute Productions, said the drama is for adult viewing, and in her opinion, it serves many purposes. She wants the audience to appre- ciate the theatricality of the piece, and the skill of her actors. Howev- er, the presentation is also intend- ed to increase awareness of vio- lence against women and the im- portance of exercising caution in everyday life. Set to open this weekend, show dates are August 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29 and 30, and all perfor- mances are at 8 p.m. The produc- tion is staged at Nassau Valley Vineyards in the lower floor open room of the main building. In keeping with the seriousness of the subject matter, and the mes- sage that the production company wants to impart, all performances will serve a cause that benefits adults and children. Except for ba- sic production costs, all proceeds from the $10 admission will bene- fit Families in Transition, a shelter and resource program for women and families that are victims of domestic violence. Staley said that the plot centers on a sexual attack on a young woman and how she reacts to her attacker. As the production pro- gresses, many psychological ap- proaches to denying or excusing unacceptable behavior are ex- plored. "When you are sitting almost in the set, you can appreciate how the actors want you to feel the anger and fear that is unleashed when violence is committed against you," the director said. "You will hear them breathing, you will literally feel the intensity of emotion." Appearing in "Extremities" are Lee Adam, Debbie Hammond, Kane Mowrey and Georgiana Sta- ley. All are active in area commu- nity theatre groups. Adam and Hammond perform primarily with Kent County Theatre Guild. Mowrey has appeared in several productions with Second Street Players and has also appeared with Possum Point Players. Geor- giana Staley has been on stage with all three southern Delaware theatre groups, and was most re- cently seen earlier this month in "Don't Dress for Dinner" with Second Street Players. Tommye Staley added that per- forming an intense, physical dra- ma such as "Extremities" has to effect those who are involved in the production. She said that she has continually asked them how they are feeling with the work, if they need a break, how much of what they perform goes home with them. "It's there, the intensity. Some- times, they are almost worried," she said. "because we all recog- nize that we have a dark side that we have to keep at bay. It can be scary, even just acting it. "They've all talked about it, and I encourage them to. More impor- tant, it has made us all aware of the issue of domestic violence, and of violence against women." Staley said that she will remind Continued on page 67 ./ERY NIGHT IS SPECIAL AT WOODY'8.
