The Northwestel Art Lover’s Series presents
TERMINUS by Mark O‘Rowe  
​An Outside the March Production

Imagine a Tarantino film set to poetry. A mother with a heavy conscience races to save a near-stranger from a vicious situation. A young woman finds comfort, sex and even love in the arms of a disembodied soul. And a dangerous loner prowls the pubs, longing to belt out Bette Midler for all to hear. Terminus explores the darkness that insecurity drives us to, and the light which comes from shedding who we’ve been and accepting who we are.

The Toronto Star describes Terminus as “the most exciting event of the 2012 theatre scene.” It was the hottest ticket at the 2012 Summerworks Festival, andthe winner of their Best Production Award. It had a subsequent smash run as part of the new Off-Mirvish season at he Royal Alexandra in Toronto.

TERMINUS tells three interwoven stories set in contemporary Ireland, all in heightened language and rhyming verse. This 2007 darker-than-dark Irish play by Mark O’Rowe is written in vividly vulgar verse. Powerful, thought-provoking and utterly beautiful to look at and listen to, TERMINUS will be performed at the Yukon Arts Centre in a way never done before: the action of the play will happen at the lip of the stage, performed for an audience of just over 100 seated on the stage, facing the auditorium.
