Highly Recommend - Patrick Davies - Theatreview - Read the review!

Novelty, comedy, and tragedy are abound in this two-hander!

Jake and Charlie carefully navigate the hustling "hurry up and wait" life of County Kerry, Ireland while Hollywood movie The Quiet Valley uses them and their fellow townspeople as extras.

Charlie wants his own script to be turned into a film. Jake wants the American actress Caroline. Caroline wants to possibly do an Irish accent one day.

Cast members Alexander Sparrow and Patrick McTague tackle 15 different characters, swapping out accents and physical natures multiple times in individual scenes. 

Playwright Marie Jones won multiple awards with this play, including the Irish Times/ESB Irish Theatre Award for Best Production in 1999, and an Olivier Award in 2001 for Best New Comedy. 

In Wellington, it is relatively common for wide ranges of locals and even New Zealand’s own landmass to double as elvish or orcish armies in our own homegrown or overseas cinematic productions. What happens if Hollywood’s romanticized vision of a rolling green locale collapses in on itself? Stones’ award-winning team has the answer.
