The multi-award winning comedy is coming to the Gaiety Theatre this March. Described as hilarious and moving, it promises to be a great night out.
Written by Marie Jones and directed by Ian McElhinney, the play won the Irish Times Theatre Award in 1999 for Best Production and two Olivier Awards for Best New Comedy and Best Actor in 2001. The play was also nominated for three Tony Awards in 2001.
Written in 1996 by Jones, ‘Stones in His Pockets‘ features two actors playing 15 characters and tells the story of how a town is changed by the arrival of a Hollywood film crew. The actors, Damian Kearney and Stephen Jones, have starred in productions such as Love/Hate, The Tudors and Ripper Street and play everything from a Hollywood diva to two men hoping for a taste of stardom in this laugh out loud comedy.
The play has been seen by over two million people and is currently being made into a film starring Ronan Keating and Game of Thrones actor, Conleth Hill, who returns to his original Olivier Award winning role of the character Charlie Conlon.
Belfast born director McElhinney, husband of Marie Jones, has a successful television career spanning over thirty years, starring in productions such as Taggart, The Tudors and Game of Thrones.
‘Stones in His Pockets‘ runs at the Gaiety Theatre from Wednesday March 5th to Saturday March 22nd. There are no performances on Sundays and evening performances are at 8pm. Matinee performances are at 3pm on Saturday the 8th, 15th and 22nd March.
