Stones In His Pockets tells the hilarious and poignant story of an American historical blockbuster filming in rural Ireland, through the eyes of two of the locals employed as extras. Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, like most of the rest of the village, are delighted that the Hollywood gravy train has pulled up – bringing the likes of stars Caroline Giovanni and Kurt Steiner as well as a handsome daily pay packet. Charlie has written a film script and is keen that it gets into the hands of anyone who can help him get the green light. Jake has designs on the lovely Caroline herself and is delighted and bemused when she appears to return his interest – but does she have another agenda? As tragedy strikes the village the locals begin to re-evaluate their relationship with their rich benefactors and Charlie and Jake decide that they have a new story to tell.
 
The play ran for four years in the West End, transferred to Broadway and won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2001, and the Evening Standard Award in 2000.
 
Stones In His Pockets is written for a cast of two:
 
Charlie Conlon, 30s
Jake Quinn, 30s
 
They also play the following characters;
 
Simon, first A.D. (Ambitious Dublin 4 type)
Aisling, third A.D., young, pretty, anxious to impress those above her, no interest in those beneath
Mickey, a local in his seventies, was an extra in The Quiet Man
Clem, the director, English, quiet nature, not much understanding of the local community
Sean, a young local lad
Fin, a young local, Sean’s friend
Caroline Giovanni, American star
John, accent coach
Brother Gerard, local teacher
Dave, a crew member, Cockney
Jock Campbell, Caroline’s security man, Scottish
 
The play will be presented with the minimum of props and costumes and the actors will need to be able to portray any or all of the above characters and switch rapidly between them. Accents can be worked on during rehearsals but a propensity in that direction is definitely recommended. There may be some Irish dancing. But no karaoke.
