TERMINUS NEW PLAY@EVERYMAN PALACE THEATRE CORK
TERMINUS by Mark O’Rowe (Intermission, Howie The Rookie) has been one of the most successful and critically acclaimed plays of the last three years from Dublin’s Abbey Theatre.
It launches a new tour at the Everyman Palace Theatre next week, from September 30 - October 2
A vivid and exhilarating play, TERMINUS is a tale of three people ripped from their daily lives and thrown into a fantastical world of serial killers, avenging angels and love-sick demons.
Mark O’Rowe is recognised as one of Ireland’s most important contemporary playwrights. He is seen as a crucial figure among an exciting generation of young writers who emerged in the 1990s and, in their exchange of traditional rural stories for urban concerns and with a thrilling exploration of diverse theatrical forms, changed the face of modern Irish theatre. In 2003 O’Rowe took a successful sidestep into the world of film with his screenplay for the movie Intermission, directed by John Crowley and starring Colin Farrell.
Don’t miss your chance to catch this breathtaking production. But be warned – it’s not for the faint of heart!
‘hilarious, stunning, surprisingly touching and enormously satisfying…Terminus is a fantastic piece of writing, O’Rowe’s best so far…’ THE IRISH TIMES
‘The potency of the drama is contained in the lurid detail and musical rhythm of the play's language…Terminus further cements O’Rowe as a writer of exceptional talent and originality.’ SUNDAY BUSINESS POST
gripping, grotesque and deliriously good… (Terminus) makes O’Rowe pretty much the most exciting contemporary Irish playwright.’ SUNDAY TRIBUNE
‘wildly funny…a matchlessly engaging evening’s theatre.’ SUNDAY INDEPENDENT
TERMINUS is at the Everyman Palace Theatre from Wednesday 30 September – Friday 2 October at 8pm. Tickets for the show are €15 for Opening Night and €25 / €20 concession for the remainder of the run with a limited number of €7 student tickets for Wednesday.
