Billed as Die Hard meets the Naked Gun on stage, Joe Bone’s multi award-winning Bane trilogy arrives in London. Action, comedy, music and drama are shaken together in this one-man one-musician work featuring Ben Roe’s live score. Each show follows tough talking hit man Bruce Bane, as he journey’s down back alleys and comes up against vicious foes, all performed by Bone’s multi character shape shifting.
Watch them in isolation or as a trilogy, but be sure to drink this potent cocktail, a drink best served cold as Bruce Bane turns up the heat.

In a brilliant parody of the film noir style, Joe Bone has manufactured a brilliantly funny show where he plays a plethora of varying roles in this dark and inverted story… accompanied to great effect by a constant live soundtrack from Ben Roe.’ British Theatre Guide
‘It’s an astounding one-man crime parody told through the body, exhaustive haul of accents and cinema-sodden imagination of Joe Bone… it is quite an accomplishment.’ Fest
