ISDA – Terminus

Join UCD Dramsoc as they present Mark O’Rowe’s fast paced, twisted and exhilarating play, Terminus.

Terminus is fast paced, bold, engaging and exciting: a play for contemporary society which takes a fearless look at darker aspects of experience and catapults audiences into the territory of heaven, hell, angels and demons.

Three characters are ripped from their daily lives, and as their intertwining stories twist and turn, audiences will be gripped by moments both endearing and exhilarating in this powerful work.

“… we go, see the slo-mo ebb and flow; the mill, the babble, the rabble of wobbling waywards, exiled and aimless, unlike us as, purposeful and doublefile, like kids on a dare, we head who the hell knows where? …”

Mark O’Rowe is an Irish playwright and film writer whose second play, Howie the Rookie, won the George Devine Award when it premiered at the Bush Theatre in 1999. In 2007 he wrote Terminus, a series of interlocking monologues, which received rave reviews when it opened at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre and won a Fringe First when it transferred to the Edinburgh Festival in 2008.

Most recently Mark’s adaptation of Daniel Clay’s 2008 novel Broken has recently been directed by Rufus Norris (London Road) and stars Cillian Murphy and Tim Roth.
