FORGOTTEN by Pat Kinevane

Fishamble: The New Play Company presents


Pat Kinevane in FORGOTTENForgotten 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.

Written and performed by PAT KINEVANE
