Part of the MCA Global Stage series.
An explosive, astounding piece of new writing. – Observer/Guardian
Heighten your senses: three characters known simply as A, B, and C weave vivid monologues of loneliness, violence, and despair. Set in the gritty underworld of Dublin’s docklands, the characters are thrown into a fantastical world of serial killers, vengeful angels, and love-sick demons as they seek their own quests. Mark O’Rowe, acclaimed Irish playwright and director, constructs a poignant moral and dramatic rollercoaster ride. Terminus is produced by Dublin-based Abbey Theatre, Ireland’s national theater, and is presented by MCA Stage in association with Goodman Theatre.
No late seating.
Running time: 100 minutes, no intermission.
