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...continued

The delivery of these interlocking monologues by all three actors was fantastic and the language was beautiful and impressive. There was so much happening in the story that I kind of want to see it again to catch what I missed. Be warned, if...continued

This play is incredible. The author's has a really remarkable imagination. I don't want to give anything away so my review is short. The play is really 3 different people's monologues interwoven over almost 2 hours without intermission. The...continued

Wonderfully performed. Three very strong acting skills on display. Being a monologue, one has to depend on them to keep you wrapped in & interested in their every word. A lot going on in stories. Sometimes confusing if not paying particularly...continued

The Irish version, in verse of course, of a Korean revenge movie. Intense, brutal, darkly funny. Don't take Grandma

It was sad, unpleasant, profanity laced and at times hard to understand the Irish accents However, the actors were extremely talented and remarkable , and the staging and lighting was simple but very effective.

This is an interesting play -- all monologues by three
characters whose lives are intertwined. The Irish brogue
of the mother starts out thick and I could not always understand what she said at the very beginning. The dialogue rhymes and I...continued

Amazing theater experience. One of the greatest new writers for the theater. Don't miss it. Acting was superb and we saw the understudies!

A very good production. Simple set and lights, fabulous actors. The story itself is very gruesome but layered with amazing language that takes you in.

Terminus was an unmitigated success. The actors were truly impressive, filling 110 minutes (no intermission!) with monologues. The language was poetic, the interlinnear rhymes reminding me a little of hip hop. The show is not for everyone, as it...continued

Beautifully written piece. Wonderful use of prose and the stories these actors tell are absolutely chilling, however it does run a little long. The script could use some trimming but I still highly recommend it.

Very exciting, fast paced, edge-of -your-seat experience-- Extremely well-acted, staged,and a dynamic script. Only problem that diluted it a bit was not being able to fully understand all the words due to the dialects of some of the actors. A...continued

Brilliant, no fear, acting. Life is hard, love is hard...all three actors portrayed their characters with compassion, energy, strength and vulnerability. My guest and I were moved in similar yet different ways, invoking wonderful, passionate...continued
