Underneath by Pat Kinevane
Published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama, 2015
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 the runaway international success of Forgotten and Silent, Fishamble presents Pat Kinevane’s third solo play, Underneath, directed by Jim Culleton.
This stunning new play is a blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret, a testament to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life. It explores the surface, and what lies underneath.
