Lorna Kirkland took DSTC on tour in October 2015 with a production of Marie Jones's unique comedy 'Stones In His Pockets'. A colourful cast of characters were brought to life by just two performers in this hilarious and moving story of extras on a film set in rural Ireland.
Switching characters, accents, ages and sexes in the blink of an eye our two-man-fifteen-character cast told the story of Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn who meet as strangers and become firm friends while ducking and diving through a world of insecure Hollywood starlets and poverty-stricken locals.
