★★★★ “Sparky performances” Bristol Post

“One of the most moving, funny and multi-layered plays I have seen in a long while” Fine Times Recorder

“Witty, thought-provoking and sharply observed” Wiltshire Times

“Very slick, very fast and very funny … Excellent, performances are faultless” Western Daily Press

The Olivier Award winning comedy, set in a rural Irish village where life is turned upside down by the arrival of a Hollywood studio to film the latest historical blockbuster. Told through the eyes of two local lads employed as extras, it soon becomes clear that Tinseltown’s romanticized dream of Ireland is a long way from reality…

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.

“Triumphant, fast, brilliant and hilarious” Independent
“An unequivocal source of joy, laughter, tears and delight” Daily Mail
“A moving and heartfelt tribute to the imaginative power of live performance” Guardian
“Has a rare theatrical kick… I envy those catching it for the first time” Daily Telegraph
“Very Irish and very funny” Irish Times
