Following a hugely successful run at the National Opera House, Wexford earlier this month to standing ovations and rave reviews, Stagemad Theatre Company presents ‘Howie The Rookie’ by Mark O’Rowe in the Asgard Theatre, Arklow, Co. Wicklow on Friday 30th August, 2019 at 8pm.
This highly charged production will have it all – at times funny and light-hearted, at other times surreal and sombre.
The play features Fintan Kelly who will be seen in Season 8 of “Game Of Thrones” and “Krypton”, a new series starting soon on CBS.
Directed by the acclaimed James Power.
The play follows the story of Howie Lee as 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 onetime enemy. Howie The Rookie is a white-knuckle ride through a nightmare Dublin, where enemies and allies are interchangeable, where most brutal events take on mystic significance.This is a play that is not to be missed.
