Stones in his Pockets
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 running at the Gaiety Theatre Dublin. Due to phenomenal public demand an extra week has been added and the show must end Saturday 29 March 2014.
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. Universally loved by all who see it, Stones In His Pockets is brought to life by two highly talented actors, Damian Kearney (TV Love Hate, The Tudors, Raw, Trivia, theatre includes Richard II, Peacock Theatre, The Government Inspector & The Comedy of ErrorsAbbey Theatre) and Stephen Jones (TV Love Hate, Ripper Street, theatre includes Conversations On A Homecoming, Druid, Alone It Stands, Dubliners Corn Exchange) who play 15 characters between them – from the two cheeky lads intent on stardom to a Hollywood Goddess!
Marie Jones has written many successful stage plays including, Women on the verge of HRT, A Night in November, Dancing Shoes and Fly Me to the Moon.

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
