August 7 – August 16, 2015

 

“Stones In His Pockets” the hit play by Marie Jones, is about a small rural town in Ireland where townspeople have been hired as extras in a Hollywood film. The play centers around two of those people, Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn. Charlie has aspirations to get his script made into a movie. Jake has recently returned from New York and is mesmerized, along with everyone else, by the famous, beautiful American star of the movie, Caroline who fails to conquer an Irish accent. The star and the other American crewmembers do not attempt to accurately portray the town and the people as they only care about finishing the movie on time with their romanticized ideal of rural Irish life..

 

Much of the comedy is derived from the efforts of the production crew to create the proper "Irish feel" and the cast of two who perform all 15 characters (men and women), often switching gender and voice with swift dexterity.   Under the assured direction of Ellen Paul, Ladysmith Little Theatre stalwarts Mort Paul (“Opening Night”, “Old Woman in a Shoe”, “Blithe Spirit”) and Torry Clark (“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”, “Our Town”, “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves”) bring these characters to life in hilarious split second timing.
