AWARD-WINNING comedy will be coming to a Northumberland village this weekend.

One-man show Bane will take to the stage at Hepscott Parish Hall after sell-out performances at the Edinburgh Festival.

The spoof is set on the streets of a non-descript American city and has been compared to a Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett novel, spliced with a Quentin Tarrantino film.

It tells a comic story of revenge, with tough talking Bruce Bane, a hired hand that shoots first and asks questions later.

The show is pulled together by writer Joe Bone, who plays all of the characters and earned the world record for most characters performed by one actor in a show.

There is also a live guitar soundtrack from Ben Roe.

The play has featured on BBC Radio 2’s Arts Show and BBC Radio 3’s The Verb.

Hepscott promoter Katie McDonald said: “With so much critical and popular acclaim, a great night out is hotly anticipated.

“We’ve a warm welcome, an interval buffet and a taste of the Edinburgh Fringe here in our village.”

The production is staged in partnership with the Highlights community touring scheme.

It can be seen in Hepscott on Sunday, at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £10, including the buffet, and are available on 01670 514031.
