STONES IN HIS POCKETS
The Prince of Wales Opera House, Gulgong

7.30pm (2hr duration)
Tickets: $15/$20 and pay at the door (cash only).
Having played all over the world including a five year run in the West End, the multi award winning comedy by Marie Jones Stones In His Pockets is now coming to you in a new production.
Don’t miss this award winning hilarious and moving tale of 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 counterpointed against the growing friction that develops between the locals hired as extras on the film and the Hollywood big shots.
Universally loved by all who see it, this new production of Stones In His Pockets will be designed especially to delight audiences on the regional NSW circuit for touring. Directed by Chris Bendall (The Magic Hour), and featuring Scott Sheridanand Grant Cartwright (winner Green Room Award Best Actor in an independent production for Five Kinds of Silence).
“It is refreshing to know that two men and a box can succeed in keeping a theatre audience fully satisfied for two hours.” The Irish Times
"4 STARS. It’s a delightful piece, offering a chance for two actors to display their virtuosity as they play 15 different characters. But though it is often richly funny, there are sudden glimpses of anger and emotional depth in Stones in his Pockets, too." The Telegraph,
