To be published early summer this year, The Gospel According to Johnny Bender is set in the fictional Derbyshire village of Edendale. The story is played out over one day, intercutting between the first village carnival in 1979, and the happenings of the carnival twenty years later in 1999. The village is caught between river and tor, this always movement below, the steep cliff above bringing night too soon, a shadow that hangs. Johnny Bender will show us things, this village and its carnival, a people-play of mystery and reveal.
