The Theatre Chipping Norton and The Dukes Lancaster, 

in association with Oxfordshire Theatre Company present

Stones in his Pockets

by Marie Jones

A quiet Irish village community 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, performed at breakneck pace, this play has made deep connection with audiences in over 30 countries.

“Hilarious, lovable and at times almost breathtaking” The Scotsman

“Richly funny” The Telegraph

Suitable for ages 12+

Directed by John Terry

Featuring two great Irish comic actors, Conan Sweeny and Charlie de Bromhead
