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, bold, beautiful production. Olivier Award-winning Silent has had huge international success from Los Angeles to Edinburgh, and from New York to Melbourne, wowing audiences and critics alike.
‘passionate one-man show… stunning…carefully wrought production…Mr. Kinevane [is] an artist of the theater.’
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
‘a must-see if ever there was one’
‘unflinching, intensely physical performance...bristling with black humour'
‘a striking performance under Jim Culleton’s effective direction... pulses with the erratic noise of life’
'sparkles with unsettling intensity and physicality...morbidly humorous...smart, perceptive direction...GO'
'Krapp's Last Tape as reimagined by Madonna'
‘engrossing from first to last…vital and entertaining…blarney that bubbles up from the gutter…mesmerising’
Sydney Morning Herald
