A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Welcome to Yale Repertory Theatre’s production of Stones in His Pockets by Marie Jones! I am delighted you are here to celebrate Resident Director Evan Yionoulis’s twelfth production at our theatre and to welcome Fred Arsenault, last seen here in Marie Antoinette in the fall, and Euan Morton, a Tony Award nominee for his performance as Boy George in Taboo: together these two remarkable actors play all fourteen characters. Marie Jones is one of the most celebrated playwrights in contemporary Irish theatre. Her plays have been embraced for their compassionate good humor and broad appeal. Stones in His Pockets debuted at the West Belfast Festival in 1996 and traveled to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1999 before landing on London’s West End, where it played for more than three years and was honored with the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. The play opened on Broadway in the spring of 2001 to similar critical acclaim and was nominated for three Tony Awards that season, including Best Play. However, the play’s life in New York was short; it was one of many productions that closed in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. And yet, Stones continues to capture the imaginations of artists and audiences across the country and around the world. Its comment on global citizenship—both what it means to be from someplace and what it means to meet people from other places—can only be more resonant now than when it was first written. Certainly, Stones has stayed with me in the dozen years since I first saw the play, and I am thrilled to share this new production with you here in New Haven. Thank you for being here with us today. As always, I look forward to hearing what you think about the play (my email is james.bundy@yale.edu) and I hope that you will also help us spread the word to your friends and colleagues. Stones in His Pockets plays through February 16 only—and your good word makes a big difference!

Sincerely,

James Bundy Artistic Director 5

A Pocket Guide to The Troubles Violent hostilities over British rule and Catholic persecution in Northern Ireland that took place officially from 1969–1998, though related violence occurred before these dates and has continued to the present. Catholic Nationalists, who favored unification with the Republic of Ireland, and Protestant Unionists, who favored remaining part of the United Kingdom, clashed in a series of riots, bombings, and shootings, mostly in Northern Ireland but spilling into the Republic of Ireland and England. More than 3,000 were killed. The Troubles reached a shaky end with the 1998 Good Friday Accord, which made Northern Ireland largely self-governing. RUC Royal Ulster Constabulary, the police force of Northern Ireland from 1922– 2000 (in 2001 it was renamed Police Service of Northern Ireland), charged with maintaining order during the Troubles. In its handling of IRA attacks, RUC was often accused of brutal, vigilante-like tactics, mistreatment of political prisoners, and loyalty to the Crown over commitment to peacekeeping.

IRA The Irish Republican Army, a paramilitary organization created in 1916 with the purpose of using violence to prove British rule ineffective and bring about a united and independent Ireland. The IRA carried out numerous bombing attacks, assassinations, kidnappings, and other violent acts in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and England, most heavily during the Troubles. Special Branch The Crime and Security branch of the Irish police force, also known as the Special Detective Unit; in other words, the Irish FBI.

The Quiet Man A 1952 film directed by John Ford, starring John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara, shot in County Mayo and County Galway (but not Stones’s County Kerry!). The Quiet Man takes place in the fictional Irish village of Innisfree, meant to be situated near Lough (Lake) Gill between Counties Sligo and Leitrim. Ford also famously directed How Green Was My Valley; the play’s fictional film The Quiet Valley seems to be a composite of the two titles.

“Turnover, speed, mark it” Signals before a director calls “action” on a film set for: 1) sound and camera to begin rolling 2) confirmation that the sound equipment is running at the proper speed 3) the film slate to be shown to the camera and clapped “Check the gate” The signal to verify that the camera was working properly during the take and that there is no debris in the area that contains the film (“the gate”). Digging turf Also referred to as digging peat. Peat is a type of soil that contains a large amount of dead organic matter and has been used as fuel in Ireland for hundreds of years. Peat farmers slice squares of peat from the bogs in which they are found, stacking them up or arranging them in coneshaped piles (called “castling”)—an emblematic image of Ireland. Scrake As in, “the scrake of dawn;” very early, or the crack of dawn. The jacks The bathroom. Xtra-vision A chain video store in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Seamus Heaney The Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet and author of “Exposure,” the poem that Jake recites to Caroline Giovanni and claims as his own. The poem talks about Heaney’s “self-exile” from Northern Ireland to Dublin and the questions of identity it forced him to consider. Pockets Full of Stones Ancient stone monuments, miles of stonewall, the Blarney Stone—stones are an Irish icon. The earliest known writing in Ireland, called Ogham, was etched on stones. In his novel Molloy, Samuel Beckett writes about a sequence of transferring “sucking stones” from a pocket to his mouth to another pocket. And though the reference is not Irish, putting stones in one’s pockets is a known suicide method because of English writer Virginia Woolf, who filled her coat pockets with stones and walked into the River Ouse near her house. Hugh Grant and the Prostitute In Los Angeles in 1995, British actor Hugh Grant was caught with a prostitute and arrested for “lewd conduct.” The prostitute, Denise “Divine” Brown, subsequently became famous on the tabloid and talk show circuit.


Gee up To motivate or energize someone; comes from “giddy-up.” County Kerry cows One of the oldest breeds of cattle in Europe, native to County Kerry. They are smaller than most breeds and have a nearly all-black coat.

Knock it on the head To stop doing something. Haring off Running off. “DYB DYB DYB, I was in the Brownies” DYB stands for Do Your Best, a traditional Scouts slogan. Throw a wobbler To lose one’s temper. Gob Mouth.

“It’s just the day that’s in it” A Hiberno-English phrase, or a phrase in English patterned after Gaelic construction. For example, some Irish say, “Is it yourself that’s in it?” (An tú féin atá ann?) to mean, “Is it you?” When Charlie says, “It’s just the day that’s in it,” he simply means that the sad day is what’s making him upset. Coddin’ Kidding, fooling. RTE Raidió Teilifís Éireann, Ireland’s National Public Service Broadcaster. Matt Talbot A reformed alcoholic who became a devout Catholic ascetic and hero of the temperance movement in early twentieth-century Ireland. Upon his death, it was discovered that he had practiced self-flagellation.

Stuffing his gob.

“The West’s Awake” In Act II, Mickey sings a verse of “The West’s Awake,” a 19th-century ballad that traces the battles in Ireland’s past and calls for its independence from Britain. It was written by Thomas Davis, a poet and Irish nationalist: When all beside a vigil keep, The West’s asleep, the West’s asleep. Alas and well may Erin weep, When Connaught lies in slumber deep. Their lake and plain smile fair and free, ’Mid rocks their guardian chivalry. Sing Oh! Let man learn liberty, From lashing winds and crashing sea. —SARAH KRASNOW, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG 13

BINGER CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE YALE REPERTORY THEATRE is dedicated to the production of new plays and bold interpretations of classics and has produced well over 100 premieres—including two Pulitzer Prize winners and four other nominated finalists—by emerging and established playwrights. Eleven Yale Rep productions have advanced to Broadway, garnering more than 40 Tony Award nominations and eight Tony Awards. Yale Rep is also the recipient of the Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. Professional assignments at Yale Repertory Theatre are integral components of the program at Yale School of Drama, the nation’s leading graduate theatre training conservatory. Established in 2008, Yale’s BINGER CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE is an artist-driven initiative that devotes major resources to the commissioning, development, and production of new plays and musicals at Yale Rep and across the country. Among the Center’s programs, a key component is its Production Enhancement Fund, which provides financial support for productions at other theatres of works commissioned by and/or first produced at Yale Rep. The Center also facilitates residencies of playwrights and composers at Yale School of Drama. Permanently endowed by a gift from the Robina Foundation, and supported by additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and individual donors, the Center is named in honor of James H. Binger (1916–2004), the noted businessman, theatre impresario, and philanthropist who created the Robina Foundation. To date, the Center has supported the work of more than forty commissioned artists as well as the world premieres and subsequent productions of twelve new American plays and musicals—including David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette, Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl, and Bill Camp and Robert Woodruff’s new adaptation of In a Year with 13 Moons by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, all of which will premiere at Yale Rep this season. Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground, adapted by Bill Camp and Robert Woodruff, was the first commissioned play supported by the Center to receive its world premiere at Yale Rep. In 2010, Notes had its West Coast premiere at La Jolla Playhouse and its New York premiere at Theatre for a New Audience, in association with the Baryshnikov Arts Center. The Center also supported the world premiere co-production of Rinne Groff’s Compulsion at Yale Rep, Berkeley Rep, and The Public Theater; the world premiere of the Yale Rep-commissioned On the Levee by Marcus Gardley, Todd Almond, and Lear deBessonet at Lincoln Center Theater’s LCT3; and the world premiere of Maggie-Kate Coleman and Anna K. Jacobs’s musical POP! at Yale Rep and its May 2012 production at Pittsburgh’s City Theatre. For more information, please visit www.yalerep.org/center.
