A Theatre Break in Bath - Stones in his Pockets
13 March 2019
We know that we said in our blog post for last week that we’d be looking at the second week of the Bath Festival in our blog post for this week, but having just seen an excellent show at the Theatre Royal Bath, we decided we just had to tell you about it. Just in case you’d like to see it and are currently with us in Bath.
The show is called “Stones in his Pockets”, and it’s a two-man comedy about an Irish village being taken over by a Hollywood film crew. The two actors perform all of the characters (of which there are quite a few…) between just the two of them. This might sound confusing to see, but thanks to the skill of the actors, and the excellent choreography, the transitions were flawless.
It’s not just us who are fans though. The show has previously won the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy, and in addition to this it’s won three Tony nominations! Before the show came to Bath it ran for four years in the West End and we can see why.
Essentially our blog post this week is a recommendation to pay a visit to the Theatre Royal when you’re in Bath. The programme is always excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful. Bath is a truly wonderful place to come for a theatre break.
Stones in his Pockets will run until Saturday the 16thof March, after which it will be replaced by the comedy Glengarry Glen Ross.
