From the award-winning writer of Howie the Rookie comes this blackly comic drama set in a crazed, completely re-imagined Dublin underworld, full of martial arts, rogue cops and savage low-lifes.
Paddy's weapons of choice are baseball bats and fists. Kilby (who imagines himself as something of an artist) prefers the skill of karate, which he practises on Hughie who just wants to break the pins of the guy who put the one-legged palmist in hospital... A dreadful accident sets in motion a violent tug-of-war between two criminal footsoldiers over the loyalty of the third. Self-loathing, guilt and loneliness emerge in this frenzied narrative, culminating in a blistering battle for survival.
'this is pure, exhilaratingly irresponsible theatre' - Guardian
