Crestfall

By Mark O'Rowe

EPUB £7.99£6.40

A collision of sex, violence and drugs throws the lives of Olive, Alison and Tilly together, bringing them to the precipice of catastrophe. Their stories converge in one place, on one evening, under an unforgiving sky.

Told in Mark O'Rowe's unique rhythmic style, Crestfall is a play about love in a dog-eat-dog world. It was first performed at the Gate Theatre, Dublin, in May 2003, and received its UK premiere at Theatre503, London, in November 2007.

Crestfall is also available in the collection Mark O'Rowe Plays: One.
