I saw ‘Howie the Rookie’ at the Old Fitz in 2014 and I thought it was the most accomplished acting that I could remember seeing..I was delighted that Sean Hawkins and Andrew Henry together won best actor ( Independent Theatre awards) that year.
When the return season was announced I was thrilled and I was not disappointed when I saw the play last week. The play is beautifully written and follows the exploits of two young Irish rogues. Both Andrew and Sean are mesmerising, captivating and brilliant. It is the most entertaining eighty minute of theatre possible, utterly delicious, and I am actually going to see it again because knowing the plot increases the enjoyment of witnessing such skilled performance.
If you see very little theatre or no theatre..do not miss this one!
