A gripping black comedy by an award-winning new voice from the North East
It's the 1960s and we're in the back of a porn cinema in Gateshead, North East England. Young Abel Stein takes a dislike to a cockney punter called Reg, knocks him out with a plastic charity collection box and stuffs him in a cupboard. As Abel, his brother and two associates keep watch over Reg, the grapevine informs them that the Krays are in town. What do you do when you've inadvertently kidnapped England's most scary man? And what will you do when his infamous and psychotic twin brother comes looking for him? BONES is co-produced by Live Theatre Newcastle and Hampstead Theatre, London in February 2002.
