It's mad that ye're here with me. In Cobh. I always felt like I was
born on the brink of the world. That I was near death, always. And
here I am! Hereafter. This place of slower motion. But whipping
energy. Back Home. A woman lies dead in her grave in the Tumbledown
cemetery, Cobh, County Cork. It's a recent relocation; only two
weeks before she was living in a flat near Croke Park in Dublin,
beneath two East European prostitutes who she had begun to be
friendly with. From her last resting place, she tells the story of
her life: her happy childhood and the mother who loved Cleopatra;
being struck by lightning and then missing school for a year; her
night shifts in hotels washing and mending laundry; up to her
ultimate and untimely demise in a north Dublin flat; all via a
series of unlikely encounters and heartbreaking betrayals. Written
in Pat Kinevane's signature style, Underneath 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.
Underneath was published to coincide with the play's first
production by Fishamble theatre company in December 2014.
