Fishamble Present The World Premiere of Underneath



Fishamble, The New Play Company in partnership with Limerick City of Culture presents the World Premiere of Underneath written and performed by Pat Kinevane and directed by Jim Culleton.

Sticks and stones didn’t break her bones, but words and pointing crushed her. Is Beauty really only skin deep? Does Ugliness hide somewhere deeper?

Following the runaway international success of Forgotten and Silent, Fishamble premieres Pat Kinevane’s third solo play, Underneath, directed by Jim Culleton, as part of Limerick City of Culture.

This stunning new play is a blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, a testament to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life. It explores the surface, and what lies underneath.


‘Ireland’s excellent Fishamble’ Guardian

‘Drop everything…book now…captivating, moving and -yes – even unforgettable’ Irish Times [on Forgotten]
