Forgotten is a solo piece of theatre which reveals the interconnecting stories of four elderly people, living in retirement homes and care facilities around Ireland, who range in age from 80-100 years old. 1943 was a curious year for this quartet- their lives have never been the same since… At times challenging dark and at other times, startlingly hilarious, it is presented in a fusions of European and Japanese Kabuki theatrical styles.
New York production produced in association with Irish Arts Centre
IRISH MAIL on SUNDAY- " Bawdily humorous and at times moving production… Kinevane moves around the stage with extraordinary grace"
IRISH THEATRE MAGAZINE- "Haunting and delivered by Kinevane in a fusion of dance and monologue that blend into a kind of theatrical extravaganza, engendering superb audience appreciation…Kinnevane has an extremely acute innate and intuitive sense of comedy, that enable him to tightrope across the heartbreaking circumstances of life, in jest without sacrificing the poignant sadness of a given predicament"
THE LIST- " A must see, if ever there was one"
THE SCOTSMAN- " Unflinching, intensely physical performance…bristling with black humor"
THE HERALD- " A bravura outpouring of sorrow, anger, hurt and lacerating wit"
