FORGOTTEN by Pat Kinevane

FORGOTTEN by Pat Kinevane

Forgotten is a solo piece of theatre which reveals the interconnecting stories of four elderly people, living in retirement homes and care facilities around Ireland, who range in age from 80 to 100 years old. 1943 was a curious year for this quartet – their lives have never been the same since… At times, challengingly dark and, at other times, startlingly hilarious, Forgotten is presented in a fusion of European and Japanese Kabuki theatrical styles. Creative Team: Written and performed by PAT KINEVANE Directed by JIM CULLETON Produced by EVA SCANLAN   Press reaction for Forgotten: ‘Drop everything. Book now…captivating, […]

UNDERNEATH by Pat Kinevane

UNDERNEATH by Pat Kinevane

Sticks and stones didn’t break Her bones, but words and pointing crushed Her. Is Beauty really only skin deep? Does Ugliness hide somewhere deeper? Following the runaway international success of Forgotten and Silent, Fishamble presents Pat Kinevane’s third solo play, Underneath, directed by Jim Culleton. This stunning new play is a blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, a testament to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life. It explores the surface, and what lies underneath. WINNER: THE SCOTSMAN FRINGE FIRST AWARD WINNER: ADELAIDE FRINGE BEST THEATRE AWARD FORBES’ BEST […]
