Hopeless, helpless, in-the-way person

Homeless McGoldrig 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. Dare to laugh at despair and gasp at redemption in this brave, bleak, beautiful production.

Der Obdachlose McGoldrig hatte einst prächtige Besitztümer. Aber dann verlor er alles – auch seinen Verstand. Um die Wunden der Vergangenheit zu verarbeiten, taucht er nun in die wunderbare Romantik von Rudolph Valentino ab.

Trotz aller Hoffnungslosigkeit, ist „Silent“ ein mutiges Stück, das sich mit Themen wie Erlösung und Verzweiflung auseinandersetzt, und die Zuschauer einlädt, mit McGoldrig tief Luft zu holen und zu lachen.

Writing and a performance of unflagging and effortless panache that grabs your heart and squeezes tightly.The Guardian

A solo tour de force… The Irish actor spellbinds… Culleton and Kinevane forge a high theatricality… This is high-level acting, hand-in-hand with a shrewdly crafted portrait that you’ll find hard to shake off. The Washington Post
