Main House WINNER - Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy

Stones In His Pockets

by Marie Jones, directed by Lindsay Posner
  • 11 - 16 March

Event Information

Monday – Saturday 7.30pm
Matinees Wednesday & Saturday 2.30pm
Press Performance Wednesday 13 March 7pm

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. Through their eyes a multitude of extraordinary characters come to life, 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.
