LOOK BACK IN ANGER
     "Patrick Malahide puts in a quite remarkable performance as Jimmy Porter, the supposedly archetypical dissident and protestor of our era...Lanky, sallow, scruffy, physically the nearest to Osborne's description that I've seen and in voice, manner, gesture-making extraordinarily vivid, he is the mixture of rancour and sentiment with which Jimmy keeps his appalling grip on friends and audience."
                  
- Charles Spencer

The Festival Times Award for Best Solo Performance

"Patrick Malahide gives an amazing, entirely creditable performance uninterrupted for
two-and-a-half hours...Judgement...aims to involve our rationality and our emotions together, and in Malahide's tour de force of a performance, brilliantly succeeds."
               -
Martin Walsh
                          Evening Herald

"...it is given electrifying reality, depth, dignity, and absolutely unfaltering conviction by the performance of Patrick Malahide."
                  -
Tony Hennigan
                               Irish Independent

"...Malahide has full command of the play. Speaking quickly and incessantly he maintains an electrifying tension that one would not have thought humanly possible to a speech of such length. A performance of majestic splendour fully deserving the standing ovation he received on the first night."
                              -
Marjorie Bates Murphy
                  The Stage

"Stunningly compelling...Malahide captures impeccably the perfect combination of slightly wild, but indubitably sane, rationality. Consistently enthralling..."

Lindsay Paterson

by G.F. Newman

Royal Court Theatre

"Malahide is in outstanding form as Sneed. Ice cool,sardonic, heartlessly pragmatic yet somehow attractive, his grey, almost characterless face and air of banked down violence authentically suggest a hard-pressed CID man who rates results much higher than principle."

IN THE RUINS
by Nick Dear
Director: Paul Unwin
Role: George III
Bristol Old Vic Theatre, New Vic Studio,
Royal Court Theatre
World Premiere

"In the Ruins is an astonishing tour de force of both acting and writing...Patrick Malahide's performance would be outstanding under normal circumstances. Considering he has learned the role and the play in just two weeks, it is little short of miraculous...beautifully and sensitively acted."
                    
- David Harrison
                                         Bristol Evening Post

"Malahide's performance...was a tour de force of energy, wit, pathos. [His] physical mannerisms and facial expressions are a carefully tuned finish to the verbal portrait."
               
- Louise Jury
                                       Western Daily Press

"Here is, above all, a performance from Patrick Malahide that embodies with breathtaking skill the state of the public realm... Malahide stares out at us, hollow-eyed and disconnected, a haunting emptiness that is a chilling image of the state."
                                           - Fintan O'Toole
         
                                          The Irish Times

 


Theatre Poster for HINTERLAND


As Johnny Silvester
HINTERLAND

"In his extraordinary performance, moreover, Patrick Malahide almost entirely inhabits Haughey's voice. He captures quite astonishingly the way Haughey's speech mirrors the     contradictions of his language... he achieves the same feat for Haughey's psychology, creating an utterly convincing
 almalgam of ruthlessness and sentimentality, inflated self-regard and emotional fragility, bluster and breakdown."
 
                                              -  Fintan O'Toole

EMBERS
by Christopher Hampton

A play based on the novel by
Sandor Marai

Director:
Michael Blakemore
Role: Konrad
Cast: Jeremy Irons, Jean Boht

Duke of York's Theatre
London's West End

"I was fired, moved, and enthralled by Embers.
I rate it as one of the major experiences
 of my theatre-going life... Malahide's silence is pregnant.
His face is the star of the evening.
I have rarely seen one work so expressively.
It speaks volumes in terms of pain, sexual guilt
that cannot be acknowledged, let alone mentioned... At one point Malahide even averts his head, as if to hide his face
from Irons's accusing gaze."
                                                                    - Nicholas De Jongh
                                                                         Evening Standard

2010

HAMLET
by William Shakespeare
Director: Nicholas Hytner
Role: Claudius
Cast: Rory Kinnear, Clare Higgins, Ruth Negga,
David Calder, James Laurenson, Ferdinand Kingsley
Royal National Theatre

"Patrick Malahide's cold, unremorseful and unrepentant Claudius is utterly
convincing as a man who would kill his brother, usurp the crown,
and run a state with a mixture of paranoia, steely control, mistrust,
and snooping that would put Richard Nixon to shame".
                                                                            - David Lister
                                                                                                                      The Independent


 "[Hamlet's] stepfather, Claudius, (the superb Patrick Malahide) is a remorseless political operator with a close physical resemblance to Vladimir Putin: at court,
he switches between realpolitik and slick statesmanship, and delivers his soapiest
 speeches straight to camera, sitting beneath a horribly avuncular portrait of himself.
It's a deeply ingenious way to convey his grip on the whole nation
and characteristic of Hytner's production, which serves Shakespeare's tragedy
without flashy originality but with understated excellence
and a Jeeves-like discretion."
                                                                                 - Caroline McGinn 
                                                                                            Times Out London
