Stones In His Pockets


  • Thu 28 Feb - Sat 9 Mar
  • Presented by Rose Theatre Kingston and Theatre Royal Bath Productions
    By Marie Jones | Directed by Lindsay Posner

A quiet community in rural Ireland is turned upside down when a Hollywood film crew descends to film their latest blockbuster in this moving and hilariously sharp comedy by Marie Jones, directed by Lindsay Posner. 

When the quintessentially optimistic Charlie and the ever so cynical Jake meet as extras on a Hollywood film shoot in Ireland, they strike up an unusual friendship. After a tragic incident involving a local teenager, Charlie and Jake begin to discover more about themselves and their community than they could have imagined.

A poignant exploration of the collision between romanticised notions of 'Irishness' and the harsher reality, Marie Jones’ Olivier Award-winning comedy is brought to life by two extraordinary actors playing all 15 characters between themselves – from the cheeky lads intent on stardom to Hollywood goddesses!
