ED2012 Theatre Review: Bane 1, 2 & 3 (Whitebone Productions)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

Hollywood moguls better hold on to their hats. With only one guy and a guitar player, this fantastic film noir parody does more than they can with their bloated, over-budgeted movies. Joe Bone plays every single character on stage, as well as every creature, weapon or indeed sound effect that strays into eponymous character Bruce Bane’s path. Bane is a hired killer who suddenly becomes the mark, and this Tarantino meets Mel Brooks comedy perfectly captures everything that’s right and wrong about those classic Hollywood thrillers. Ben Roe adds to the show by playing Spanish guitar music throughout, giving the comedy an atmospheric edge. Bane is a fantastic and innovative piece of entertainment, an absolute and complete must see.

Pleasance Dome, 4-26 Aug (Bane 1 on Tuesdays and Fridays, Bane 2 on Wednesdays and Saturdays, Bane 3 on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays), 5.20pm.
