By Mark O'Rowe

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.

Crestfall contains strong language and adult themes and is not suitable for those under 16.

‘What makes it stand out from the legions of other crime stories is its idiosyncratic language, a propulsive stream of muscular verbs and baroque slang spoken in the first person and present tense’- New York Times
