The Man with the Golden Pen

The Man with the Golden Pen

Looking out of his window as the rain lashed down during one of those grey austerity-ridden days in post war Britain, he made two of the biggest decisions of his life;

  • never to spend winter in England again;
  • to write the spy story to end all spy stories."
  • And that is exactly what Ian Fleming did.
  • 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…

The creator of Secret Agent 007, stands before the audience with a Martini in hand and a terrified look in his eyes. At 42 he is about to do the thing he most fears - he is getting married.

Who does he turn to for help?     Bond.     James Bond.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream is probably Shakespeare's most popular play, and with good reason.  A comedy - one of Shakespeare's finest, with five interconnected subplots set in a forest with fairies and magical characters mixing with mortals.  Love and lust - real and imagined goes wrong with comic results and confusion reigns, but eventually magic spells correct all that went awry and the three couples all are wed to the right pairs.  Throughout the play comedy interludes are provided by the rude mechanicals - a bunch of tradesmen who decide to put on a play for the wedding festivities.  Their antics are hilarious and have become a comedy standard.

If you don't like Shakespeare this production is for you - come along and be immersed in our magical comedy forest and we promise you'll laugh all the way home.
