The Hangar Theatre concludes its 2003 summer Mainstage season with the quintessential Irish comedy “Stones in His Pockets” by Marie Jones. This recent Broadway hit had a long run in London’s West End before moving to New York City. Winner of the 2001 Olivier Award for best comedy in London, “Stones in His Pockets” is a hilarious look at the effect big budget Hollywood has on a rural town in Ireland. When a film crew descends on this small town the audience experiences big budget filmmaking through the eyes of local “extras.”
“Stones in His Pockets” comes to the Hangar Theatre Aug. 13-30. Ticket prices range from $12 to $30 and are available at the Ticket Center at Clinton House at 116 North Cayuga Street, Ithaca, and at Cornell’s Willard Straight Hall. Call for tickets at 800-842-8422 or 607-273-4497. Tickets may also be purchased from one hour prior to curtain time at the theatre and online at www.hangartheatre.org. Student and group discounts are available.
“Stones in His Pockets” is written by Irish playwright Marie Jones. Born in Belfast, Jones was the writer-in-residence at the Charabanc Theatre Company from 1983 to 1990. Two talented actors will tackle the roles of over 12 different characters in “Stones in His Pockets.”
