Ballad of Backbone Joe

Ballad of Backbone Joe

Undefeated bare-knuckle boxer Backbone Joe has a right hook “as quick as a spun tea-bag” but repeated blows to the head have left him a bit slow to process little details. Like, did he really kill his wife by throwing her off a bridge?

Bringing a suitcase full of junkyard theatre, visual trickery, dark humour and rag’n’bone live music. The Ballad of Backbone Joe tells a hilariously daft and gruesome tale of a murder set in a small country town, in their unique, comedic style.

"A Mighty Boosh-esque style performance"
