OPENING TONIGHT: Assemblage Theatre debuts with 'Terminus'

WELCOME TO THE SCENE ASSEMBLAGE THEATRE >>>

David Domkowski knows that, quality notwithstanding, there are some shows that the Big Three of Tacoma area community theater companies just can't do. So the longtime Tacoma director made up his own, that can.

Mark O'Rowe's Terminus is a play like that. "The moment I read the play I knew I had to do it. I also knew that - because of subject matter, language, sexual imagery and violence - no Tacoma area theater would probably produce it."

And thus: Assemblage Theatre's debut production in Opera Alley's The Space. Despite the likelihood that the windows will be obstructed, one can't help but feel that The Space's panoramic view of the Port of Tacoma is appropriate for a work that spawned of the question, "What would happen if someone fell from a construction crane, looming over Dublin?"

Terminus opens Thursday, April 12, and promises angels, devils, sex, violence, and O'Rowe's reputation for agile, witty and poetic dialogue. Fantastic and sometimes horrific stories interweave in a host of rhyming, dark monologues, and Tacoma - at least those of us that are over seventeen - will have the chance to see a kind of theatre that doesn't often show its face between Olympia and Seattle.

THE SPACE, TEMINUS, APRIL 12-13, 20-21, 27-28, 8 P.M., $14.50, 729 COURT C (OPERA ALLEY), TACOMA, FACEBOOK.COM/ASSEMBLAGETHEATER
