STONES IN HIS POCKETS

by Marie Jones
Directed by Lindsay Posner

Starring Owen Sharpe and Kevin Trainor

A small village in rural Ireland is turned upside down when a major Hollywood film studio descends to make a historical blockbuster on location. The story is told through the eyes of Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, employed as extras along with numerous other locals. As cultures clash, it becomes clear that Tinseltown’s romanticized dream of Ireland is a long, long way from reality. Just two talented actors brilliantly bring to life a multitude of extraordinary characters, ranging from the spoilt American starlet to the English director and the village old timer.

Often hysterically funny, thought-provoking and witty, this wonderful comedy has won numerous awards including both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy, as well as three Tony nominations on Broadway. Stones in his Pockets ran for four years in the West End and has delighted audiences around the world.

One of the UK’s greatest directors of comedy, Lindsay Posner’s many acclaimed productions include Noises Off at The Old Vic, and Abigail’s Party, Relatively Speaking and Hay Fever in the West End. He was Associate Director of the Royal Court Theatre from 1987 – 1992, where his production of Death and the Maiden won two Olivier Awards. He recently directed God of Carnage for the Theatre Royal’s 2018 Summer Season.

Event Reviews

  • Douglas

    I've re-read the one-line reviews on your website and I can't believe that this is the same play my wife and I just walked out of in the interval. We found it the most appalling play we've ever attended - certainly the only one I've walked out of in sixty years of theatregoing. The two actors struggled enthusiastically with the lines they were given, but it was beyond redemption! The overall effect was further worsened by a constant stream of swearing, which we found offensive.
