Agent of Influence: The Secret Life of Pamela More

Show Details

Presented by Fluff Productions

Performance date and time
Saturday, 24th November 2018
7:30 PM

Fashion editor. Socialite. Secret agent.

To vivacious 1930s socialite and outspoken Times columnist Lady Pamela More, life was all glamorous cocktail parties and high fashion (and spying on fascists). This little jewel of a one-woman comedy-drama chronicles Lady Pam's recruitment by MI5 to keep a close eye on Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII and their collusion with the burgeoning Nazi party. Pamela realises though that what initially seemed like a glorious jaunt is very quickly becoming a deadly struggle for power in a world in the shadow of war.

Staged with great panache, gorgeous period detail and an impressive film noir/jazz-swing soundtrack, this is an absolute hoot of a show, all derring-do, perfect attire and deliciously clipped consonants. Her acidic wit and tart bon-mots will have you rooting for her till the very end.

'Genuinely ripping yarn, laced with intrigue and populated by many of the movers and shakers of that era.' The Stage

'A stream of pithy put-downs [spat] out with perfect received pronunciation… a classic spy romp.' The Scotsman

★★★★ 'Phenomenal acting skills make for a strong and entertaining show… fantastic writing… an action-packed storyline.' The List
