Stones In His Pockets

Touring the East of England 14th March - 18th May

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
