The Aspidistra Code

By Mark O'Rowe

EPUB £4.99£4.00

A sinister but comic drama of honour and violence, from the award-winning author of Howie the Rookie.

Brenda and Sonia are head-over-heels in debt. They fear the arrival of the Drongo, a violent and unpredictable loan-shark. But Brendan's brother Joe has hired protection in the person of Crazy Horse. Turns out the two hard men are old mates and the crisis seems averted - until the Drongo's code of honour is called into question and violence threatens once more.

Mark O'Rowe's play The Aspidistra Code was first performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in 1996.

The Aspidistra Code is also available in the collection Mark O'Rowe Plays: One.
