    Howie tells a story. Then Rookie takes it up. This epic tale is a wild, urban odyssey through a nightmare landscape, hilarious and grotesque by turns.

    Mark has re-imagined his award winning second play for one actor and directed a new production starring Tom Vaughan-Lawlor. The play was produced by Landmark Productions and opened in June 2013 in Dublin, before touring to Edinburgh, London and New York.

    As a one-man show it is captivating

    It is, quite simply, an essential experience Harvey O'Brien

    riveting new production of the play... The language pulses with action and scuffed lyricism

    Full Review

    Standing ovations seem to have become a pointless matter of course, even for second-rate producitions, but there’s simply no other way to react to the extraordinary performance of Tom Vaughan-Lawlor. Michael Moffatt
    Irish Mail on Sunday

    an exceptional script from Mark O'Rowe

    Mark O'Rowe's extraordinary play... has lost none of its terrifying power and none of its viciously vile, corruscating wit

    Emer O'Kelly
    Sunday Independent

    Mark O'Rowe's blistering script (and direction)

    a blazingly talented playwright Fintan O'Toole
    Irish Times

    Mark O’Rowe’s vibrant, scabrous, picaresque tour of the seedy side of life in Dublin... smoothly transformed a two-hander into a one-man show Fiona Mountford
    Evening Standard

    O’Rowe’s wry tone; a tang of Tarantino – just gone stagnant and scuzzy... every set piece hooks you back in Matt Trueman
