Stones In His Pockets

Thu 14 Mar 2024 - Sat 18 May 2024

Venture across the Irish Sea to County Kerry this Spring as we present our 2024 Spring tour...

Stones In His Pockets

Local lads Jake and Charlie are working as extras on a Hollywood epic movie that has taken over their small village in rural Ireland.  Switching from plucky Irish extra to know-it-all American movie star with a flick of the wrist, the pair take on all 15 characters to tell the story of the impact this movie has on their local community. The result is a sad, hilarious and irresistible play that pushes the boundaries of storytelling. 

Inspired by the cinematic stylings of Wes Anderson, we are also adding newly composed music and video projection to the multi-award winning play. A hit in Dublin, Edinburgh and London’s West End, Stones In His Pockets is a chance for audiences to laugh, cry and revel in the power of theatricality.  

“Marie Jones pulls off an ingenious theatrical trick that has political kick

Eastern Angles once again prove that smaller organisations are just as capable of achieving industry standard shows as those currently gracing a West End stage
