16 March 2018:  STONES IN HIS POCKETS & RITUAL FOR DOLLS

Our next show, Stones in his Pockets by Marie Jones and Ritual for Dolls by George MacEwan Green, will be performed on Friday, 16 March, 2018.

With just two actors playing over a dozen parts, Stones In His Pockets is a comedic yet tragic take on the effects of the Hollywood dream in a small Irish town.

Ritual for Dolls is re-enacted by four Victorian toys, a golliwog, a toy soldier, a doll and a monkey with a drum forgotten in an attic, as they portray the intense events in the lives of the children who had owned them.
