Stones in His Pockets

Run time: 115 Mins inc interval
Stones in His Pockets

A tragicomedy, Stones in His Pockets is set in a small town in County Kerry, Ireland, which is being overrun by a Hollywood film crew filming the "Quiet Valley". The story centres on Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, who, like much of the town, are thrilled to be employed as extras for the movie.

Caroline is a famous, beautiful American movie star that fails to ever successfully conquer the Irish accent. Most of the locals are initially excited at the opportunity to be a part of a major film and distracted by the novelty. However, as the film continues to roll out things come unstuck.

After a night in the pub, a local teenager, Sean Harkin, takes his own life and conflict arises when the film crew is hesitant about letting the extras have a break for Sean's funeral.

Amidst the gut busting comedy the harsh realities of rural life surface and real stories are poignantly told.

"It is refreshing to know that two men and a box can succeed in keeping a theatre audience fully satisfied for two hours. This is a pitch-perfect two-hander that is entirely absorbing from start to finish." The Irish Times
