STONES IN HIS POCKETS

& 04 Apr - Capitol Theatre

Presented By Forty Winks Tamworth

A comical tale of an Irish town turned upside down

 

Having played all over the world including a five year run in the West End, the multi award winning comedy by Marie Jones is now touring Australia in a new production.

 

Stones in his Pockets is the hilarious and moving tale of a quiet Irish community turned upside down by the arrival of a Hollywood movie shoot. The film's story of a budding romance between a rich girl and a local farmer, is played out in stark contrast with the growing friction that develops between the locals hired as extras on the film and the Hollywood big shots.

"4 Stars.  It's a delightful piece, offering a chance for two actors to display their virtuosity as they play 15 different characters.  But though it is often richly funny, there are sudden glimpses of anger and emotional depth."  The Telegraph

Alternately riotously funny and deeply moving, the play is universally loved by all who see it. The performance features virtuosic performances by two outstanding actors who play 15 characters between them - from the two Irish extras looking for a brighter future on the silver screen, to the young local, bitter about being rejected for a job on set, to the gorgeous Hollywood superstar.
