Stones In His Pockets: Take Two

The Fall Season at the Utah Shakespeare Festival is underway.  If you were hoping to see Les Miserables on a weekend,  you are out of luck.  They are sold out.  However, the weekday showings still have seating, so you’d better move quickly.  Nevertheless, the other two shows are definitely worth a trip in and of themselves.

We are excited to welcome back Stones In His Pockets to Cedar City.  The last time it was performed at the festival was 2005.  It was so well received, that Brian Vaughn and David Ivers are reviving this memorable masterpiece.  Whether or not you saw it last time, you won’t want to miss it!

Vaughn and Ivers single-handedly tackle a multitude of characters, fluidly switching from one to another.  The story is real to life, moving, and interspersed with well-timed humor.

Here is what others had to say about it:

“In the play’s first 15 minutes, it might be tempting to label Ivers and Vaughn a couple of brash show-offs. Thankfully, their craft is so tight you cease paying attention to their skill and instead fall to the charms of the story.”–Brian Fullton, The Salt Lake Tribune

“Is seeing Stones in His Pockets worth the trip to Cedar City? Thanks to the performances of David Ivers and Brian Vaughn, the answer is an unequivocal yes. The emotional core of the story is relevant, even if the script left me a little disappointed.” –Russel Warne, Utah Theater Bloggers

“What’s that?” you say.  Yes, you can enjoy all the wonderful sights of Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, and Cedar Breaks for FREE.

“When?” you ask.  Good question!  This one-day event is September 29,2012.

“Wherefore?”  In hopes to encourage Americans to explore our nation’s natural beauty, heritage, and culture.

“What if I live far away from any of our nation’s treasures?”  Well, you can always call the Abbey Inn (which, incidentally, is centrally located to 3 pretty amazing attractions) and make your reservation, today!

Don’t forget, 09/29/12.  I’m glad we had this talk.
