Fishamble: The New Play Company presents



Written and performed by Pat Kinevane
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 award-winning runs in Ireland, Australia, New York, Los Angeles and London, Fishamble returns to the CCI with an exuberant and blackly comic show that challenges the judgements we make based on first appearances. A rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, Underneath is a testament to the people who live on the fringes, ‘under the nose’ of everyday life.

“Extraordinary… Sit back and enjoy.” (The New York Times)

“Skillfully crafted… fabulously choreographed… visually exciting” (Sunday Times)

“Intensely physical performance… (Kinevane’s) most powerful work yet” (**** Sunday Business Post)
