Bob Abelman

Contemporary Irish playwright Mark O’Rowe wrote “Terminus” in his spare time.  And it shows.

Roy Berko

Though compelling, “Terminus” is definitely not a play for everyone.  The language is rough, the vivid descriptions often unnerving, and the closeness of the actors to the audience can be off-putting.  On the other hand, the performances, the experience of listening to the impressive poetic writing, and the opportunity to experience intense emotional involvement, may stir the right audience to attend.

Christine Howey

Even with occasional wrinkles, O'Rowe's wordplay and intersecting monologues rivet the attention in a way few other plays ever attempt to do.

Art Thomas

"Terminus" is a challenging play to watch and NOT for those who want a "mindless night of entertaining theater." It is a glimpse into the minds of three hard core Dubliners where violence, psychotic behavior, and dealings with multiple demons is the subject matter. The extended monologues link the stories but the poetry rich writing was not captured by two of the three cast on opening night.
