Northlight Theatre

Northlight Theatre, under the direction of Artistic Director BJ Jones and Executive Director Timothy J. Evans, continues its 2012-2013 season with Marie Jones's Stones in His Pockets, directed by J.R. Sullivan, featuring Brian Vaughn and David Ivers.  The production will run at Northlight Theatre, 9501 Skokie Blvd in Skokie, from March 8 - April 14, 2013.

A couple of small town Irishmen hope to hit it big when hired as extras for an epic American movie filming in their scenic County Kerry village. Two actors portray a colorful cast of dozens in this rollicking tale that pits harsh reality against Hollywood endings.

Stones in His Pockets is presented in association with the Utah Shakespeare Festival.

BJ Jones comments, "One of the greatest pleasures in my job is the opportunity to bring old friends and colleagues to Chicago.  Northlight veteran director J.R. Sullivan, with whom I worked first in 1976, returns to direct Stones in His Pockets with Brian Vaughn and David Ivers-two versatile actors who will play 15 roles in a play that is both hilarious and heartbreaking.  David and Brian are the Artistic Directors of the Utah Shakespeare Festival and J.R. is the Artistic Director of the Pearl Theatre in New York.  With all this artistic firepower on display I am sure you will be as delighted as I am to welcome them to Northlight."

The designers are Scott Davis (Set Design/Props), David Kay Mickelsen (Costume Design), Casey Diers (Lighting Design) and Lindsay Jones (Sound Design).  The stage manager is Christine D. Freeburg and the dramaturg is Kristin Leahey.
