Isaac, a young wanderer on a quest that he doesn't fully understand, breaks into Big Daddy's rundown auto shop and finds himself on the wrong end of a shotgun. He goes to work for Big Daddy to pay off his debt, and soon discovers there's more to this garage -- and its unusual inhabitants -- than meets the eye. The Last Cadillac blends ancient mythology and contemporary drama to create an original tale of African gods and grease, lost cities and found heritage.

Wonderfully disturbing! Everything about this was a dark, disturbing, witty, masterpiece. The thing that probably disturbed me the most was how unnerved I was at my own laughing about something so dark, yet so strangely funny. Not for the faint of heart, the disturbing imagery masterfully painted through monologue stays with you. The acting was superb. An absolute kudos to the linguistic coach and actors! As a former resident of Dublin, I was fooled. I did not realize these actors were not a traveling troupe from Dublin. So accurate were their accents and so deep was their understanding of their characters I knew clearly which parts of the city their characters were meant to hail from. I even believed that some might have been cast in these roles due to their origin rather than putting on the character completely from nil. The set design and direction were fantastic as well. A phenomenal effort for a fascinating play.

Terminus is for mature audiences.
This extravagant drama is both utterly surreal and compelling. As a piece of theatre and as a piece of poetry, _Terminus _is a tour-de-force; a febrile, demonic fantasy that sweeps the audience along on a helter-skelter ride made up of the wildest part of the imagination.
