Reviews for Forgotten :
‘beautifully written and vivid…uniquely memorable’ The New Yorker
‘Drop everything. Book now…captivating, moving and – yes – even unforgettable’ The Irish Times
‘an incredibly moving piece of theatre…unequivocally beautiful’
Audiences and critics were raving about Pat Kinevane’s outstanding performance in Silent, when it played to sold-out houses in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe last August. Since then , it has toured to several venues in Ireland, and been performed at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris and at the Galway Arts Festival picking up many awards along the way including the Argus Angel Award at Brighton 2012, and the Fringe First and Herald Angel awards at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011.
The critically acclaimed show Silent is the touching and challenging story of homeless McGoldrig, who once had splendid things. But he has lost it all – including his mind. He now dives into the wonderful wounds of this past through the romantic world of Rudolph Valentino. Dare to laugh at despair and gasp at redemption in this brave, bleak, beautiful new production.
Reviews for Silent :
The List ‘a fringe must-see if ever there was one’
Herald Scotland ‘fabulous dance of whirling words…a bravura outpouring of sorrow, anger, hurt and lacerating wit’.
The Scotsman ‘unflinching, intensely physical performance..bristling with black humour. ‘
The Skinny ‘a brilliantly crafted demonstration of everything that is possible in live performance.’
