Setting Dublin

Terminus is a monologue play by Mark O'Rowe. Written entirely in rhyme,[1] the play follows three characters over the course of a single night in Dublin: a former schoolteacher (A), her lonely, estranged daughter (B), and a serial killer who has sold his soul to the Devil (C).[2]

Terminus premiered at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin[3] on 9 June 2007,[4] before transferring to the Traverse Theatre as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it won a Fringe First Award in 2008.[5] It was revived by the Abbey in 2009 and again in 2011 with an international tour.
