Theatre Royal Bath to host Stones In His Pockets from 11th-16th March 2019Posted on: 26 Feb 2019
Award-winning comedy Stones In His Pockets will enjoy a rib-tickling run at Theatre Royal Bath from Monday 11th until Saturday 16th March 2019.
Cited as outrageous, thought-provoking and clever, the show has nabbed several awards including the Olivier, the Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy and three Tony nominations on Broadway.
The story follows a small village in Ireland which is sent spiralling into disarray when a Hollywood studio arrives to film a historical blockbuster. Told through the eyes of two extras, Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, it's a barmy comic tale of clashing cultures and how the Town of Tinsel's overly romanticized notions of Ireland are actually quite different from the reality. Cue the English director, petulant American actress and crusty village old timer.
Praise for the play has been as enthusiastic as it has effusive - “Triumphant, fast, brilliant and hilarious” Independent; “An unequivocal source of joy, laughter, tears and delight” Daily Mail; “Very Irish and very funny” Irish Times - and it ran for four years in the West End. In other words, you need to catch this one while it's in town.
Performances from Monday to Saturday are at 7.30pm, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm. There's also a press performance on Wednesday 13 March at 7pm. Ticket prices range from £5.50 to £37.50 (including £1.50 booking fee) and can be purchased here. Theatre Royal Bath is located at Sawclose, Bath, BA1 1ET. Tel. 01225 448815 for more information.
