"We saw an amazing production on Valentine’s night. It was our first visit to Draíocht, but it will definitely not be our last – the theatre is a great facility and a real hidden gem. Even though we’d never been there before, it’s obviously well reputed as there was a full house and from the conversations overheard in the foyer, for many of the audience a visit to Draíocht was a regular event.
UNDERNEATH, written and performed by Pat Kinevane, is a work of genius. The fact that he can play a woman and be totally believable is a testament to his talent in both writing and acting. The atmosphere moved from poignant to funny, from spine chilling to close to the bone contemporaneous humour in the blink of an eye. The story held us from start to finish. We empathised with her and laughed with her, we cried and waited for the next line over and again. Pat Kinevane had us riveted to the stage for the entire hour and forty minutes he was on. His stage presence is great and his ability to engage his audience was a delight.
If this is the calibre we can expect from Pat Kinevane, we will be watching to see when he is coming again. And if this is the standard performed at Draíocht, we will definitely be visiting again and soon.
Thank you for such a wonderfully pleasurable night."
