This event has probably been and gone!
Stones in his Pockets by Marie Jones
There is great excitement in a small village in rural Ireland when a major Hollywood film company arrives to make a blockbuster movie on location.
The characters Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn who are employed as extras along with numerous other locals, tell the story between them but as the Irish and Hollywood cultures clash, it becomes clear that the film director's romantic dream of Ireland is a long, long way from reality.
The two actors playing Charlie and Jake intrigue audiences by each playing a host 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.
