March 5-24, 2019
Silent is the touching and challenging story of homeless McGoldrig, 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. Dare to laugh at despair and gasp at redemption in this brave, beautiful production for which Fishamble and Pat Kinevane won an Olivier Award in 2016.
carefully wrought production…an artist of the theatre.” CRITIC’S PICK Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“writing and a performance of unflagging and effortless panache that grabs your heart and squeezes tightly.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
