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.

Award-winning writer and performer Pat Kinevane and Fishamble: The New Play Company return to the IrishArts Center with Silent, following a sold out run at The Abbey, Ireland’s National Theater.

Running Time: 80 minutes

Irish Arts Center is proud to be part of 1st Irish 2012, New  York’s annual festival of Irish theatre. The festival runs from September 3 to October 1 at venues across New York. For a full list of events visit www.1stirish.org.
