A one-man show about the man who created James Bond

Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, Secret Agent 007, stands before the audience, a Martini in hand, a terrified look in his eyes... At 42 he is about to do the thing he most fears; he is getting married!

 

It is 1952 and Fleming is putting the finishing touches to the first Bond book, Casino Royale and Bond is with us; the alter ego, an icon of class and everything Fleming aspired to...

 


"An extremely stylish and entertaining piece, capturing the essence and spirit of Ian Fleming... The play succeeds admirably both as entertainment and as an insight into an extraordinary man" (Ajay Chowdhury - the Ian Fleming Foundation)

 

Performed by Michael Chance, it is written by Mark Burgess & directed by Louise Jameson. 

 

Mark Burgess's first play Casting Shadows appeared on both the Brighton & London Fringe before he was commissioned to adapt it for BBC Radio 4. He has since written many short stories & plays for R4 including Einstein In Cromer for David Suchet & A King's Speech for Alex Jennings which was subsequently released by the BBC as an AudioCD.

Two Halves of Guinness, with Trevor Littledale as Sir Alec Guinness, premiered in 2010 & continues to tour the UK.

Mark has recently been commissioned by one of the UK's largest charities, The Harpur Trust, to write a play dramatising the history of Bedford.

 

Louise Jameson has most recently appeared in the BAFTA nominated series TOAST OF LONDON playing a prostitute and is about to appear as a nun in an episode of DOCTORS.  Her next fringe venture is a play she co-wrote with Nigel Fairs called DRIVING ME ROUND THE BEND at The Space this coming April.
