‘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.

This boutique performance by the award-winning Fishamble: The New Play Company has been performed in over 50 venues throughout Ireland, and has toured to England, Scotland, US, France, Czech Republic, Iceland, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey, as well as to the US to New York, Boston, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles.

‘Drop everything. Book now…vigorous theatricality and an incisive, often scabrous wit…a seamless blend of style and substance…astonishingly realised…a consummate act of storytelling…shot through with compassion, understanding and performative adventurousness…it is a striking accomplishment; captivating, moving, and – yes – even unforgettable.’ The Irish Times
‘incredibly moving and unequivocally beautiful…immediate and compelling’ ***** The Scotsman
‘exceptional solo show…a bravura display by Kinevane, full of robust vitality and a roguish, twinkling wit’ ***** The Herald
‘a piece of theatre not easily forgotten…its best moments linger in the mind and haunt you on the way home, and after, maybe…a performance of rare authority and completeness…a seductive, compelling quality, performed with grace and rigour.’ The Sunday Tribune
‘Never underestimate the substance, the complexity, of a long life. ‘Forgotten,’ Pat Kinevane’s oneman show at the Irish Arts Center, gracefully illustrates that point with mimickry, invention and formidable stamina. Well paced and poignant. Mr. Kinevane artfully conveys the secrets, the hidden past, of the aged, and the dignity often behind their quaint, seemingly innocuous bearing.’ New York Times
