Stones In His Pockets

21/04/2017 - 22/04/2017 Stones In His Pockets

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. The performance features Sean Hawkins (Howie the Rookie directed by Toby Schmitz) and Grant Cartwright 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. Alternately riotously funny and deeply moving, Stones In His Pockets is universally loved by all who see it.
