Yale Repertory Theatre's production of Marie Jones' Stones in His Pockets, about a movie being made in Ireland, arousing the passions of the locals, officially opens Jan. 31 following previews that began Jan. 25. Performances continue through Feb. 16.

Directed by Evan Yionoulis, the cast features Fred Arsenault, last seen at Yale Rep in Marie Antoinette, and Tony Award nominee Euan Morton. The actors play more than a dozen eccentric characters—"from the film's spoiled American starlet to the star-struck locals."

In the play, according to press notes, a "rural Irish village is turned upside down by the arrival of an American film crew. When Charlie and Jake are cast as extras in the movie, they discover that Hollywood's romanticized Ireland stands in stark contrast to the reality of their daily lives."

The production has scenic and projection design by Edward T. Morris, costumes by Nikki Delhomme, lighting by Solomon Weisbard, sound by Matt Otto, dramaturgy by Sarah Krasnow, vocal coaching by Stephen Gabis and stage management by Nicole Marconi.



Tickets range from $20-96, and are available online at yalerep.org, by phone at (203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street). Student, senior and group rates are also available.
