“Stones in His Pockets”
The two-man show Stones in His Pockets is like a well-made sandwich—warm, charming, and full of cheese. A self-consciously “Irish” play performed in a bar, it also oozes pathos, fatalistic humor, and goes down well with a glass of beer. There’s nothing challenging about its predictable clichés, but watching actors Tim Hyland and Darragh Kennan fall in and out of over a dozen characters—from a Hollywood diva to an old town drunk—is a pleasure.
