Upstairs at the Lamb in Old Town, The Lamb Theatre is the intimate venue for the premiere of a new Chancel Productions play entitled The Man With The Golden Pen. The one-man piece portrays a period in the life of Ian Fleming, the author of the James Bond spy thrillers. Written by Mark Burgess, the play stars Michael Chance and is directed by Louise Jameson.
"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."
Lamb Theatre, Sat 12th May, 19:30.
£10, concessions £8.
Following the single Eastbourne performance, the play will transfer to the Brighton Festival, upstairs at the Three & Ten for three nights (15th, 16th & 17th May).
