One morning, a man walks into an apartment, looking for a guy named Joe. Instead, he finds a woman, Marjorie, home alone. He never leaves. Throughout the day, her two roommates return, but the events that have taken place between Marjorie and this man are so shocking that her roommates aren't sure what has happened, who is to blame, or whether or not a crime has been committed.
Chilling, thrilling, and thought-provoking, Extremities is a dynamic, contemporary, and relevant play about power -- who has it, who doesn't, how you get it, how you keep it, what you do with it once you have it. And when you lose it, how far will you go to get it back?
"A white-knuckle psychological thriller." - USA Today

The Drunken City named a top show of 2014 by both Graydon Royce and Rohan Preston of the Star Tribune!
"Here's what small theater let me enjoy this half year...Dark & Stormy Productions allowed established actors like Kris L. Nelson and Tracey Maloney play like a chamber ensemble in the tiny The Drunken City."
|Clockwise from L: Kris L. Nelson, Sara Marsh, Adelin Phelps, Tracey Maloney, Paul de Cordova in The Drunken City|
"Yes, The Drunken City proves that Dark & Stormy Productions, under whose aegis Bill McCallum staged this winner, is a consistently spunky outfit. Maloney, Nelson, and Sara Marsh commanded the stage, as could be expected. But newcomer Adelin Phelps...almost stole this Adam Bock show."

Dark & Stormy Productions honored by critics in 2013!
"Director Ben McGovern teamed with actors Sara Marsh, Bill McCallum and Kris L. Nelson to make David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow" a savagely arresting treat in a found space."
- Rohan Preston
"Sally Wingert led a talented four-actor cast through Adam Bock's dark-as-midnight workplace comedy. The experience was intensified by the found location — a recently vacated downtown office space — that seemed to be haunted by the true nature of the Northeast Office's work."
- Ed Huyck
"New theater company Dark & Stormy Productions is really hitting their stride; they've become one of those theater companies I rely on to never let me down. Their fourth production in just under two years continues their tradition of short, intense, real, small-cast, smartly written plays in unusual locations."
- Jill Schafer, Cherry and Spoon
"[Speed-the-Plow], which starred Guthrie regulars Kris Nelson and Bill McCallum alongside company founder Sara Marsh, gave a gripping, spittle-laced experience. The drama...was more evidence that small theaters are a big part of what makes the performing arts scene special."
- Rohan Preston, Star Tribune
"Dark & Stormy is a newish company that's come screaming out of the gate with a series of terrifically cast shows, professionally produced and expertly marketed...I've seen three out of four shows...[and] I hope Dark & Stormy continues their level of professionalism and rock-star casting."
- Dominic Orlando, Minnesota Playlist
