‘Has no one a skitter o’ dignity left?’
A unique collage of Kabuki dance and Irish storytelling, Forgotten has been a huge international success for Fishamble during the past decade. It is a captivating portrayal of four elderly characters living in retirement homes around Ireland. Pat Kinevane’s haunting performance brings to life these sometimes forgotten voices of society.
‘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
‘Never underestimate the substance, the complexity, of a long life. ‘Forgotten,’ Pat Kinevane’s one-man 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
Fishamble is an Olivier Award-winning internationally acclaimed Irish theatre company, dedicated to the discovery, development and production of new work.
An eight-day cultural adventure set amidst the stunning backdrop of the Wild Atlantic Way – now in its 11th year.
Highlights include Meascan a new cross-cultural collaborative work commissioned especially for the festival; a powerful literary strand, featuring the first ever Irish event with genre-busting Maggie Nelson; and the premiere of the darkly comic Uprooted by Brokentalkers.
Alongside events for young inquisitive minds, we also welcome our first ever Cairde Young Curators programme which presents a series of music, workshop and film carefully selected by our youth panel. At the heart of the programme lies a varied music strand featuring unique collaborations in special locations.
‘Paul, darlin’, this isn’t a democracy. It’s a residents association.’
Lisa Tierney-Keogh’s razor-sharp This Beautiful Village premiered at the Abbey Theatre with a sold-out run in September 2019.
On a quiet street in leafy, suburban Dublin, local residents meet about a piece of graffiti.
Who did it? What does it mean? And what’s to be done about it? They have wine and a quorum. Nothing can go wrong.
Exposing every side of what it means to co-exist in Ireland today, six people will confront their pride, prejudice and privilege.
It won’t be pretty. But it could be beautiful.

I am often asked “where do you get your material from?” The truth is really that I try to see the funny in everything. My mother died in March 2019 and of course it was sad and grief can be tough sometimes but I saw a lot of funny in that too. Since death comes to us all and grief is something most of us will experience I thought there must be plenty of people who would like that funny to be shared. Also I did a show about my Dad being sick back in 2010 and I couldn’t face my mother in the afterlife because I know her first question would be “your Father got a show, how come I didn’t get one?”
I think it’s tougher to lose your mum. My Dad was best supporting actor. My mother was the actress in a leading role. You are never ready when the star of the show dies. So this is a show about My mother. It’s a show about motherhood and sacrifice, anxiety and grief, the mistakes you make as a mother and a son and the hard road to forgiveness and finally it’s about loss, grief and the chaos that surrounds it.
Where do I get my material from?
Life and death!
