BEFORE by Pat Kinevane and Fishamble at The Everyman 4 - 5 Jun

BEFORE


A new play with music by Pat Kinevane, Presented by Fishamble: The New Play Company

From the team that brought you Forgotten, Underneath and the Olivier Award-winning Silent, Before is a new play with music, set in Clery’s of Dublin, on the very day this iconic department store shuts – for good. Pontius is inside, trying to choose a gift for his estranged daughter, whom he hasn’t seen for almost 20 years. He will meet her in an hour. This father’s journey is both beautiful and strange, from the isolation of his Midlands home, to the madness of O’Connell Street. Some folk are impossible to buy for…

Before was commissioned by Fishamble and has been in development with the support of the Arts Council, National Theatre Studio (London), Pavilion Theatre, RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Georganne Aldrich Heller, Robert Leroy, and The Strollers Touring Network. Fishamble is an Olivier Award-winning internationally acclaimed Irish theatre company, dedicated to the discovery, development and production of new work.

★★★★ ‘Kinevane’s performance works like a spell… a real showstopper, heaven can be found in the most unlikely places.’  Irish Times

★★★★ ‘extraordinary collaboration… soul-searching, achingly touching gem… [Kinevane is] a treasured force in Irish theatre.’ Sunday Times
