Clonmel Junction Festival is delighted to announce that the Fishamble Theatre Company’s production of “Silent” will be returning to Clonmel on 31st January for one night only at the White Memorial Theatre. The show was the highlight of the 2012 festival, selling out both nights and unanimously being awarded the judges prize for Best Theatre performance. The show then travelled to New York and LA where it received rave reviews. The Festival is thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this show back to Clonmel.
“Silent” is a very special night at the theatre. A touching, and heart warming play that is both uplifting and insightful. It is a credit to the writer performer Pat Kinevan that he is able to tackle a topic as poignant as homelessness and mental health in a meaningful way while still creating an evening of the most exceptional entertainment. He dares the audience to laugh at despair and gasp at redemption in this brave, bleak, beautiful production. “Silent” really is a must-see from one of Ireland’s top theatre companies.
The Irish Times ‘Drop everything. Book now… captivating, moving, and – yes – even unforgettable.’
New York Times ‘Kinevan doesn’t just demand your attention, he commands it. And that difference is what makes him an artist of the theater.’
The Guardian ‘Buttonholing the audience with immense charm’ 4 Star Review
