Stones in His Pockets
Hollywood comes to rural Ireland in this hilarious multi-award winner which ran for four years in London's West End.
A two-man show about the filming of a Hollywood epic in rural Ireland, Stones in His Pockets features a pair of film extras, Charlie and Jake, who tell the story by taking on all the roles themselves.
'An unalloyed source of joy, laughter, tears and delight... Marie Jones's script digs deep and dark while giving us two hours of serious pleasure'Daily Mail
'Jones builds an astonishingly complete, acute, funny and humane picture - a complete theatrical tour de force - hilarious, loveable and at times even breathtaking'Scotsman
'It is clearly magical, this comedy by Belfast writer Marie Jones, dealing as it does with myths, memories, class and sex, with two actors who create a whole world on stage. The play itself not only sends up the delirious fantasy of film, it becomes a moving and heartfelt tribute to the imaginative power of live performance'Guardian
'If there is a more cleverly constructed, enterprisingly acted play on offer in London right now, I cannot think of it'The Times
