Award-winning Irish tragicomedy by Marie Jones

BREC is thrilled to announce Stones In His Pockets the multi-award winning comedy by Marie Jones is touring Australia in a new production.

Stones In His Pockets is a hilarious and moving tale about a quiet Irish community turned upside down by the arrival of a Hollywood movie shoot.

The film’s story of a budding romance between a rich girl and a local farmer, is played out in stark contrast with the growing friction that develops between the locals hired as extras on the film and the Hollywood big shots.

Riotously funny and deeply moving, the play is universally loved by all who see it.

“With comedy and a great deal of theatricality, Stones in His Pockets highlights intimate and confronting narratives that are often left out of our histories.” – Chris Bendall, Director.

The show features performances by Grant Cartwright and WAAPA graduate and winner of Best Lead Actor in the 2014 Sydney Theatre Awards, Sean Hawkins. The talented duo play fifteen different characters between them from the two Irish extras looking for a brighter future on the silver screen, to the young local, bitter about being rejected for a job on set, to the gorgeous Hollywood superstar.

Having played all over the world including a five year run in the West End, the multi award winning comedy, Stones in His Pockets is at BREC on Saturday 8 April at 7.30pm.
