Homeless McGoldrig 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, in this brave, bleak, beautiful new production.  SILENT is currently wowing audiences on its extensive Irish touring and has been invited to prestigious festivals in the UK, Europe and USA.

Fishamble: The New Play Company is an internationally acclaimed, multi-award winning company dedicated to new work for the theatre.  Recent productions presented on major Irish and international tours include THE PRIDE OF PARNELL STREET by Sebastian Barry, and FORGOTTEN also by Pat Kinevane.

Reviews of SILENT:

‘a must-see if ever there was one’   The List

‘unflinching, intensely physical performance..bristling with black humour’  The Scotsman

‘fabulous dance of whirling words..a bravura outpouring of sorrow, anger, hurt and lacerating wit’ The Herald

‘a striking performance under Jim Culleton’s effective direction…a moving story, which, until its end, pulses with the erratic noise of life’  Irish Times

‘remarkable range of styles and devices…to be in that audience was to experience a rare synergy between performer and the performed-to’  Irish Independent
