Stones in His Pockets
Written by Marie Jones
Directed by Chris Bendall
Starring Sean Hawkins & Jamie Oxenbould

“It’s a delightful piece, offering a chance for two actors to display their virtuosity as they play fifteen different characters. But though it is often richly funny, there are sudden glimpses of anger and emotional depth
in Stones in his Pockets, too.” The Telegraph

Having played all over the world including a five year run in the West End, the multi award winning comedy by Marie Jones is now touring Australia in a new production.

Stones in his Pockets is the hilarious and moving tale of a quiet Irish community turned upside down by the arrival of a Hollywood movie shoot. The film’s story of a budding romance between a rich girl and a local farmer, is played out in stark contrast with the growing friction that develops
between the locals hired as extras on the film and the Hollywood big shots. Alternately riotously funny and deeply moving, the play is universally loved by all who see it. Over a dozen characters, including the extras, are played by just two actors, throughout the production. This involves lightning fast character transformation, often from one word to the next, with only minimal props and costume shifts possible to support these changes. As such it requires a high level of dexterity in physical and vocal transformation, a feat achieved bythe outstanding cast. It is an artistically
vivid and original production, moving and funny, theatrically inventive and entirely engaging for a broad audience.
