Self-confessed metrosexual Fionan (Hugh O’Conor) doesn’t want a Stag Do, but would happily attend the Hen. His concerned bride-to-be Ruth (Amy Huberman) persuades the marginally more macho best man Davin (Andrew Scott) to organise one.
Reluctantly he agrees, while doing everything he can to stop Ruth’s infamously alpha male brother, known only as ‘The Machine’ (Peter McDonald), gatecrashing their sober, walking-weekend, excuse for a Stag Party. Not so easily foxed, ‘The Machine’ tracks them down, sparking to life a wild few days in rural Ireland where the Stags find themselves lost, shot at, stoned and butt-naked.
Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock and Legacy) leads a fresh ensemble cast of rising Irish and British stage, screen and comedy stars including Hugh O’Conor (The Young Poisoner’s Handbook, My Left Foot), Brian Gleeson (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Eagle of the Ninth), Andrew Bennett (Angela’s Ashes), Michael Legge (Channel 4’s Shameless) and Amy Huberman (Comedy Central’s Threesome).
The Stag will open nationwide at cinemas in Ireland on March 7 and in the UK on March 14, 2014
