Terminus - Mark O'Rowe This is a powerful and unsettling play. Set in Dublin, it consists of three un-named characters and nine inter-connected monologues. The narrative is initially straightforward: a hotline volunteer embarks on a mission to help someone in distress, a young woman goes out for a drink with friends, a man picks up a not-very-attractive woman in a bar. Gradually, the threads of the narratives merge, the links between the characters become clear and the story becomes dark and almost surreal. This is not for everyone: it contains strong language and references to sex and violence. But there is also comedy and real human tragedy. The language is wonderful: amazingly evocative and - best of all - in verse.
