STONES IN HIS POCKETS

When: Saturday, 7:30pm

Where: BREC

A tragicomedy, Stones in His Pockets is set in a small town in County Kerry, Ireland, which is being overrun by a Hollywood film crew filming the "Quiet Valley". The story centres on Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, who, like much of the town, are thrilled to be employed as extras for the movie.

Caroline is a famous, beautiful American movie star that fails to ever successfully conquer the Irish accent. Most of the locals are initially excited at the opportunity to be a part of a major film and distracted by the novelty. However, as the film continues to roll out things come unstuck.

FLOURISH  - AN EXHIBITION BY KATE FLOYD

When: Sunday, 10am

Where: Petrichor Gallery, 8 Nockolds St, Walpole

The exhibition is a collection of still life and landscape paintings that have been inspired by Walpole and the native flowers and plants of the area. The unique colours and forms of our native flora are explored in different mediums.
