Bane is a one-man / one-musician series of plays, that follows gunslinger Bruce Bane as he goes about his shadowy business in the city. Bone plays all the characters, Roe plays all the music. The shows have won the pair multiple awards and critical success.
It began in 2009 when Joe Bone started performing five-minute comedy stories following his fictional creation Bruce Bane, and his exploits. Within a few months Joe had gotten music man Ben Roe on board, to offer his unique sound and dramaturgy to the stories, which developed into their debut hour – Bane.
First the pair hit Brighton, Edinburgh followed and the show was up and away. Bane 2 and Bane 3 followed.
Bane 4 is due to hit the stage in the summer of 2016.
