Stones in his Pockets
By Marie Jones
Directed by Geoffrey Whynot
When Hollywood overruns a rural Irish village, the culture clash between the arrogant cast and crew, and underemployed Irish locals is inevitable, and inevitably hilarious.
In this tongue-in-cheek comedy two actors portray over 13 characters amidst a film production of “The Quiet Valley”. While using the townsfolk as extras, the bigwig studio attempts to exploit the authenticity of the local people and landscape. All the while missing out on the unheard, real life stories behind the small timers with big dreams. When tragedy intervenes, the community begins to reassess the shallow nature of film and Hollywood style fantasies.
Witty, funny, but sparked with surprising touches of real poignancy, the award-winning Stones In His Pockets is terrific contemporary Irish theatre.
