“Thrilling new play.” – The New York Times

“One of the most extraordinary actors of his generation.” – The Irish Times

“It is, quite simply, an essential experience…it feels like must-see theatre, and it is.” Irish Theatre Magazine

Take an adrenaline-fueled ride into Dublin’s underworld. A tale of two halves, narrated first by the Howie, then picked up by the Rookie, unfolds within a landscape of feverish drinking, casual sex and visceral violence. Meet unforgettable characters along the way from Ladyboy, the psychotic thug hell-bent on avenging the deaths of his fighting fish, to monstrous Avalanche, clad in ski pants, looking for love from her bar stool. 

Mark O’Rowe’s critically acclaimed two-hander was first produced in 1999 and took the theatrical world by storm. Originally staged in New York in 2001 at PS122, this brutal but funny script is transformed into a one-man show brimming with ferocious lyricism and coruscating wit. Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (RTÉ's Love/Hate) prowls, dances and dives to give an electrifying full-throated performance, for which he was named Best Actor at The Irish Times Theatre Awards. 

Brace yourself for an epic theatrical odyssey.

One of Ireland’s leading theatre producers Landmark Productions returns to New York City following Enda Walsh’s dark solo comedy Misterman. The play, a co-production with Galway International Arts Festival, starred Cillian Murphy and played at St. Ann’s Warehouse in 2011. Landmark was last seen at Irish Arts Center in spring 2013 with Deirdre Kinahan’s These Halcyon Days.

For ages 16 and up. Please note the play contains sexual content and strong language.

Running Time: 1 hour 20 min
