Napa Valley Playhouse presents Stones in his Pockets, a two-man comedy featuring Dodds Delzell and Tim Setzer May 18-June 3.
Director Jennifer King calls the play “hilarious and touching” as it tells the story of residents of a small town in County Kerry, Ireland, who become extras when a film crew comes to shoot a movie.
The two actors play multiple roles – both male and female. “They shift in and out of character through gesture or the simple adjustment of a hat,” said King.
Written by Marie Jones, the play premiered in the West Belfast Festival in August 1996 and then was seen in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1999, followed by a brief run in Dublin before moving to London’s West End. It enjoyed a Broadway run and was nominated for three Tony Awards in 2001.
“Stones in his Pockets” opens Friday May 18 at 8p.m. and runs Friday and Saturday night at 8 and Sundays at 2 p.m. through June 3.
Tickets are $20, $18 for students, seniors over 60 and military, and $10 for youth under 21. Buy tickets at www.napavalleyplayhouse.org or 255-LIVE.
Napa Valley Playhouse (formerly Dreamweavers) is at 1637 West Imola Ave. in Napa.
