Toward the end of “Stones in His Pockets,” now onstage at American Players Theatre, two extras pitch a director on a movie they want to make.
In this film, the extras are the stars, and the stars are the extras. The story is set in late 20th century southern Ireland, among cows and Kerrymen. (It sounds quite similar to the play we’re watching, in fact.) And they want it to call it “Stones in His Pockets.” How’s that for a title?
The director pauses and turns to an assistant. “Doesn’t say much,” she deadpans. “Not very catchy. A bit nondescript.”
