BAM and Irish Arts Center present

Howie the Rookie
Landmark Productions
Written and directed by Mark O’Rowe

“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

A dead fighting fish and a bout of scabies incite revenge in Mark O’Rowe’s 1999 play, inspired by Samuel Beckett’s novel Molloy, chronicling the cat-and-mouse travails of the Howie Lee and the Rookie Lee[1] (no relation) through a down-and-out Dublin. Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Love/Hate) gives a visceral, full-throated performance as both characters, with only a change of t-shirt in between.
