9781408173275: Silent and Forgotten (Modern Plays)

Silent is the touching and provocative 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 his past through the romantic world of Rudolph Valentino. Silent has been described as 'a moving story, which, until its end, pulses with the erratic noise of life' (Irish Times), 'a must see if ever there was one' (The List), and as 'magnificent, remarkable' (Irish Independent). By the same writer, Forgotten features 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. Both challengingly dark and startlingly hilarious, Forgotten is 'an unequivocally beautiful piece' (Scotsman), 'beautifully written and vivid' (New Yorker), conveying 'the secrets, the hidden past, of the aged, and the dignity often behind their quaint seemingly innocuous bearing' (New York Times). Forgotten was produced by Fishamble: The New Play Company at over sixty Irish venues, in eight European countries, and in three US cities between 2007 and 2012. Silent was originally produced in 2011, also by Fishamble, winning the Scotsman Fringe First and the Herald Angel awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Argus Angel at the Brighton Festival 2012, as well as touring Ireland, Paris, Edinburgh, Los Angeles and New York. 'Kinevane has an extremely acute, innate and intuitive sense of comedy that enable him to tightrope across the gross and heartbreaking circumstances of life, in jest without sacrificing the poignant sadness of a given predicament' Irish Theatre Magazine

About the Author:

Pat Kinevane is a native of Cobh, County Cork. He has worked as an actor in Dublin for Dublin for many years, performing with most of Ireland's leading companies including Team, The Abbey, Druid, The Gaiety, Passion Machine and Fishamble. His first play, The Nun's Wood, won a Stewart Parker Trust/BBC Award in 1999.

Review:

Pat Kinevane brings extravagant expressiveness to the role of Tino McGoldrick, a homeless drinker ... What in other hands might be relentlessly grim material is saved by Tino's mocking black humour. Keeping self-pity at bay, his wit skewers those around him. (on Silent) -- Helen Meany * Guardian * Riveting (on Silent) -- Unknown * The Sunday Times * Mr. Kinevane artfully conveys the secrets, the hidden past, of the aged, and the dignity often behind their quaint, seemingly innocuous bearing. (Forgotten) * New York Times * Tino is delighted to have an audience for his reminiscence about his experiences and the people he has met. His tales are full of weird and wonderful characters yet beneath the humour Tino cannot avoid the awareness that he remained silent and did not help his brother endure the homophobic abuse that drove him to suicide . . . A compelling and very moving tale. * The Public Reviews on 'Silent' * A curious synergy of dance and dramatic monologue that captures the painful performance of life in all its candid splendor . . . through his multiple personalities he offers an insight into an anecdotal pictorial realism . . . What begins as a somewhat hulking runtime eventually builds to a touching finale and the frenetic pace closes with a quiet pause. "If anyone asks, I'm not here. I'm not here at all". Sorrowful sentiment. Silence. * What's on Stage on 'Silent' * (on 'Silent') a beautiful and meticulous script . . . The Simplicity and richness of Kinevane's language is stunning, both capturing an Irish idiom and resounding with the uniqueness of Tino's own extraordinary voice. Kinevane's message is deadly serious, but he tells his story in a playful and often joyful way. * Time Out London * (on 'Silent') Pat Kinevane's 2011 monologue . . . is both a cascade of scintillating lyricism and a dance of longing, hope and heartbreak. It flirts with whimsy, yet it's extraordinarily seductive, a tragic story illuminated by flashes of ribald comedy and shocking cruelty. . . . It's a passionate assertion of shared humanity, delivered in a voice of rage and wonderment. Tough, tender and exquisite. * The Times * (on 'Silent') This is virtuoso writing * Guardian *
