New York’s Irish Arts Center has announced an extended run of Pat Kinevane’s one man show, ‘Silent’, by one week, with additional performances up until Sunday September 30th.
Written and performed by Pat Kinevane, ‘Silent’ is the touching story of McGoldrig, a homeless man 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.
The New York Times described it as a passionate one-man show.
“Mr. Kinevane interprets Valentino's highly theatrical screen presence to stunning effect...[he] doesn’t just demand [the audience’s] attention, he commands it. And that difference is what makes Mr. Kinevane an artist of the theater.” Ben Brantley of The New York Times wrote.
‘Silent’ has already collected a number of awards, including The Scotsman Fringe First and The Herald Angel at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Best Theatre Award at the Clonmel Junction Festival, and The Argus Angel at the Brighton Festival.
‘Silent’ runs Wednesday to Saturday at 8pm, with Sunday matinees at 3pm, until September 23rd and then Wednesday September 26th, Thursday September 27th, Saturday September 29th at 8pm and Sunday September 30th at 3pm in the intimate 99-seat off-Broadway Donaghy Theatre in the Irish Arts Center at 553 West 51st Street. ‘Silent’ is part of the fifth annual 1st Irish Theatre Festival.
This production of ‘Silent’ at the Irish Arts Centre is presented in association with Georganne Aldrich Heller and Fishamble: The New Play Company.
