Stones In His Pockets is a comedic yet tragic take on the effects of the Hollywood dream in a small Irish town. The story centers on Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, who, like much of the town, are employed as extras for the filming. Things take a turn when a local teenager commits suicide, by drowning himself with stones in his pockets, after he is humiliated by one of the film stars. The script calls upon the cast of two to perform all 15 characters (men and women).
The play was first shown in Belfast in 1996 and went on to have a successful run in London's West End. The original cast of Conleth Hill and Sean Campion later took the show to Broadway. Having won the Irish Times/ESB Irish Theatre Award for Best Production in 1999, the play also won the Olivier Awards in 2001 for Best New Comedy.
