Stones In His Pockets

Stones posterSo, I am directing this little play at Progress Theatre. The movies come to film a historical epic in a little town in County Kerry, Ireland. The story is told from the point of view of two locals employed as extras and two actors play all the parts, from the glamorous Hollywood star, to old Mickey, possibly the last surviving extra from The Quiet Man. 

It’s exhausting directing a play but I probably have it easy compared to the two actors who have to remember all the lines and cues, switch between Irish, American, Scottish and English accents and recall where they last left their props.
