Week 1: TERMINUS by Mark O’Rowe

Image

Our first show of term was ‘Terminus’ by Irish playwright Mark O’Rowe, which took place in the Corpus Playroom, 21 – 25 January.

Synopsis

“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 double-file, like kids on a dare, we head to who the fuck knows where?”

Over the course of a single night, three people are ripped from their daily lives and catapulted into a world of singing serial killers, avenging angels and lovesick demons. Told through overlapping, rhyming monologues, the gritty and fantastical are pitted together in this award-winning, exhilarating play.
