at all times the author’s mastery and skill is on display

Brian Singleton Irish Theatre Magazine

O'Rowe is expanding his language and dramatic form as far as they can go.

Helen Meany The Guardian

Terminus will become a modern classic

Fiona Mountford Evening Standard

The language - sparkling, funny and heightened - is poetic and fantastical, Molière meets magic realism.

Veronica Lee The Arts Desk

O'Rowe is a masterful writer, conjuring up beautifully vivid images with his rich text...(he) is one of the finest contemporary Irish writers around

Simon Sladen The British Theatre Guide

startlingly brilliant

Time Out
