Stones in His Pockets

June 28 - July 22, 2023 in Alternating Rep

Two actors play 15 characters in one rollicking comedy!

When small town Irishmen Charlie and Jake are hired as extras in an epic American movie that invades their scenic County Kerry village, chaos ensues as they begin to discover that their romanticized Hollywood dream isn’t quite what it seems. Pitting harsh reality against Hollywood endings, Marie Jones’ Olivier Award-winning tragicomedy is a hilarious story brought to life by Jorge Donoso & Ethan Paulini.
