Stones in his Pockets

Stones in his Pockets

The Theatre Chipping Norton and The Dukes Lancaster

29 May – 10 Jun | 7:30pm

A quiet Irish village is turned upside down with the arrival of a Hollywood film crew, looking for the ‘real’ Ireland for their latest schmaltzy blockbuster. A pair of extras, Charlie and Jake, watch with amazement, envy and delight as cultures clash, divas strop and everyone fights over the last portion of lemon meringue pie.

Two actors play a vast array of eccentric and lovable characters in this universally loved, worldwide comic theatre sensation. Written with poignancy and sincerity and performed at breakneck pace, this play has made a deep connection with audiences in over 30 countries.
