An explosive melodrama about a would-be rape and a woman's stark revenge.  Alone in a rural New Jersey farmhouse, Marjorie is accosted by an intruder but manages to narrowly escape and turn the tables on him.  By the time her roommates come home, she has taken the law into her own hands.  This Outer Critics Circle Award-winning play deals with the pathology of rape, the inequities of the justice system, and the unlikely relationship between victim and attacker.
"… the New City production is believably acted and efficiently
and unobtrusively directed."
– Broad Street Review

"…. Difficult to watch but impossible not to."
– Philadelphia Inquirer
