In this charming show about death, beauty and what lies Underneath, the Olivier Award-winning team of Pat Kinevane and Fishamble: The New Play Company have created a multi award-winning ghost story.

A hit of the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe Festivals Underneath is the Irishman’s third internationally successful solo play and people will be mesmerised by his deft story-telling.

This stunning play is a darkly comic, rich and vivid account of a life lived in secret and a tribute to the people who live on the fringes, under the nose of everyday life.

Pat wrote the play with psychological insight and delivers it with compassion and wit. With references to Egyptian tombs, this ghoulish tale is a must for all theatre lovers.

“This show is charming and surprisingly light-hearted for the topic. It’s beautifully acted and it’s really engaging and funny.” - Craig Cooper, Festival Artistic Director

“This is one ghost story that haunts more by virtue of its poignant truths than its supernatural elements.” – Los Angeles Times

To the point: Compelling ghost story, multi-award-winner, deft story-telling, darkly comic, secret life, charming, light-hearted, engaging and funny.
