‘Has no one a skitter o’ dignity left?’

Pat Kinevane’s captivating portrayal of four elderly characters, living in retirement homes and care facilities around Ireland, is a unique collage of Kabuki dance and Irish storytelling. With vibrancy and haunting honesty, Kinevane’s stylized performance brings to life these sometimes forgotten voices of society.

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?

This stunning 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.
