Sage Gateshead welcomes a dynamic collaboration this month, featuring bestselling crime writer Mark Billingham and esteemed musical duo My Darling Clementine. The alliance will bring an Americana country soundtrack to one of Billingham’s new stories, The Other Half.

Built around songs from albums by My Darling Clementine, the thrilling plot is set in a worn out bar in Memphis, where Marcia, a former Las Vegas showgirl, works double shifts to avoid debt. Lonely customers who frequent the bar share their stories of grief with Marcia, who then begins to live her life through them.

Presented in front of a backdrop of visuals, actor, comedian and writer Billingham narrates his rousing, original story while My Darling Clementine perform the soundtrack live on stage.

A must-see for both Americana and literature fans.

Mark Billingham and My Darling Clementine play Sage Gateshead on Friday 13th February.
