Silent – A touching and challenging story by Pat Kinevane

Following on from Pat Kinevane’s wonderful ‘Forgotten’ which still is one of the best one man theatre shows I have ever seen, Pat has written an equally powerful but different new play ‘Silent‘.

A touching and challenging story of homeless Tino McGoldrig, who once had splendid things, but he has lost it all, including his mind. Tino now dives into the wounds of this past in Cobh, through the romantic world of his fathers’ fondness for  silent movie actor Rudolph Valentino, from whom he receives his name. Through choreography sequences Pat Kinevane’s flawless manages to bring the audience through moments in his troubled life with silent sequences which are captioned by placards that he holds up, and with music by Denis Clohissey you are immersed into the era of  30’s silent movies.

Satirically, Tino deals with issues surrounding mental health and the total inadequacies of the various agencies to provide support for people in need of real help. There are many moments that provide a laugh too including Tino talking about a couple who attend all funerals in their area, even people they don’t know.

Pat Kinevane will bring you on a journey in ‘Silent’ that will both engage you and make you feel his pain in a deep and though provoking play. ‘Silent‘ was developed and produced with Fishamble the new play company

(updated Feb 2012 ) Silent continues to tour around Ireland and will be in Abbey Theatre on the Peacock stage 3th May – 16th June.

‘Silent’ won two coveted awards at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2011 – The Scotsman Fringe first and the Herald Angel.
