This adrenaline-fuelled ride into Dublin's underworld narrated first by the Howie, then picked up by the Rookie, unfolds within a landscape of feverish drinking, casual sex and visceral violence. In this tale of two halves, we meet unforgettable characters from Ladyboy, the psychotic thug hell bent on avenging the deaths of his fighting fish, to monstrous Avalanche, looking for love from her bar stool.

Originally a two-hander, Mark O'Rowe now transforms his award-winning play into a one-man monologue brimming with ferocious lyricism and coruscating wit. Tom Vaughan-Lawlor prowls, dances and dives to give a blistering performance, for which he was named Best Actor at this year's Irish Times Theatre Awards. The production also won Best Lighting Design for Sinead McKenna, and the show itself was nominated for Best Production.
