A collision of sex, violence and drugs throws the lives of Olive, Alison and Tilly together, bringing them to the precipice of catastrophe.

Olive, Alison and Tilly tear through a landscape of sex, drugs and violence in an unstoppable stream of poetic verse. 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.

Age guidance 16+

Crestfall contains strong language and adult themes. It is not suitable for those under 16. If you are worried about any potential themes please contact a member of our Box Office team on (01) 87 87 222 who will be able to advise on subject matter.


'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.'
The New York Times
