Howie the Rookie is intelligently spare and beautifully performed, it is revealed as a rare feast of theatrical imagination. A short, sharp and shocking night that’s often brilliant. Jo Litson

Presented by Redline Productions

A wild urban odyssey.

Howie the Rookie, an award-winning Irish play by Mark O’Rowe (Terminus) is an electrifying and epic tale; a wild, urban odyssey through a nightmare landscape, hilarious and grotesque by turns.
The Howie Lee (Andrew Henry) gets dragged into a bizarre feud of honour involving a scabies-infested mattress against The Rookie Lee which spirals out of control and ends in his own personal tragedy. The Rookie has problems of his own: massively in debt to a terrifying gangland figure for killing his prized Siamese fighting fish, he steels himself for a hideous revenge, until he is championed from an unlikely quarter by his one-time enemy.
Howie The Rookie is a white-knuckle ride through a nightmare Dublin, where enemies and allies are interchangeable, where the most brutal events take on a mythic significance.
