Stones in his Pockets.
Lights! Camera! Action!! HOLLYWOOD is coming to the Barn Theatre… but what happens when two Irish extras become the stars?! An authentic rediscovery of the worldwide phenomenon, ‘Stones in His Pockets,’ capturing the magic of the original with the thrill of new stagecraft. Set in a rural Ireland, a small village is turned upside down by the arrival of a Hollywood studio to film the latest historical blockbuster. Told through the eyes of local lads Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, who are employed as extras, it soon becomes clear that Tinseltown’s romanticised dream of Ireland is a long way from reality… Directed by Matthew McElhinney, son of the play’s writer and original director, this new production brings a fresh take on the often hysterically funny, thought-provoking and witty comedy, which 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.
