'Looking out of my window as the rain lashed down during one of those grey austerity-ridden days in post-war Britain, I made two of the biggest decisions of my life; one, never to spend winter in England again; two, to write the spy story to end all spy stories'.
And that is what Ian Fleming did. Designing his own Jamaican retreat and calling it 'Goldeneye' before sitting down to write 'Casino Royale', the novel that would introduce secret agent James Bond 007 to the world.
This new production marks the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film, 'Dr. No'.
In this one-man play Michael Chance portrays Fleming as he sets about creating his alter-ego, James Bond. Written by Mark Burgess, The Man with the Golden Pen is directed by Louise Jameson.
Tickets £10 and £9.
