Stones in his pockets
by Marie Jones
A tour across Greece
From the Neos Kosmos Theatre, the performance ‘Stones in his pockets’, a delightful recital of role exchange with Makis Papadimitriou and Giorgos Chrisostomou, travels across Greece this summer.
The comic tragedy is set in Kerry, Ireland, where a big Hollywood production is filmed. Charlie and Jake are two local supporting actors, which means that they are extras… which means that they are background actors… which means that they stand no chance… and they take part in the film. So does Sean, who committed suicide. He put stones in his pockets and he fell into the water. It’s such a pity.
The fake world of Hollywood in conflict with the tough reality of a small county town through the eyes of two people, through the lives of 15 characters, through degradation and distinction, through the mass media and the means of public transport. It’s such a pity.
