Landmark Productions announces a major new production of Howie the Rookie by Mark O’Rowe

Three hearts poundin’ loud, three lungs, pairs of lungs, suckin’ louder, suckin’ hard. 

Then softer, then calmer, then quieter.

Then quiet.

Howie tells a story. Then Rookie takes it up. Mark O’Rowe’s electrifying, epic tale is a wild, urban odyssey through a nightmare landscape, hilarious and grotesque by turns.

Meet the enormous Avalanche, monstrous on the bar stool in her white ski pants. Meet Ladyboy, a dangerous gangland thug with Siamese fighting fish and (it is rumoured) three sets of teeth. Meet Mouse, Howie’s younger brother. Meet the Howie. Meet the Rookie.

Mark O’Rowe’s ‘thrilling new play’ (New York Times), has been re-imagined for a single actor.

Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, star of RTÉ’s Love/Hate, will play both Howie and Rookie. Brace yourself for an adrenaline-filled theatrical odyssey.
