Jack: You are now witnessing the legendary cool of the shark himself. We are staring down the barrel at the poker face of George Bridget Kelly. 
Bush : Bridget?
 

Rank is a terse, darkly comic thriller exploring the boundaries of loyalty, trust and friendship in a cynical world of avarice and betrayal. Rank examines the lure of addiction in all its forms as two gamblers struggle to resist one last throw of the dice, when a taxi-man at Dublin Airport's taxi rank is asked by a criminal to collect a suspicious bag. 

Following the runaway success of Fishamble's production of Sebastian Barry's The Pride of Parnell Street in last year's Festival, the ever inventive Fishamble returns with another play that charts the remarkable transformation of Dublin in the past decade. Rank asks some seriously funny questions about the impact the economic boom has had on the emotional lives of Dubliners and what price we now place on honesty and integrity.

“Without Fishamble, Irish theatre would be anaemic.”  Brian Friel
