The show is a one‐ man comedy, written and performed by Joe Bone with a live guitar soundtrack, written and performed by Ben Roe. It follows anti‐hero Bruce Bane, a tough talking wise cracker, as he journeys through life on the mean streets of a fictional American city. It’s both a comedy and a drama and has three separate episodes in total, all of which can be seen as stand alone shows, in any order. Heavily inspired by film and graphic novels, the performance uses mime, gesture and sound effects to conjure the setting, with multiple character switching to create a filmic tapestry on stage that is funny, engaging and at times moving. No props, no set, just 1 man and a guitarist.
