The Character of Pamela More originated in Sarah Sigal's play World Enough and Time and was so popular with audiences and critics Sarah decided to develop her story and create the character her own one woman show. After previews at Theatre 503 in London, the show had a hugely successful run at The Underbelly, Edinburgh in August 2016. The show then returned to London for a one off performance at JW3. Pamela is set to have a busy 2017 taking the show around the country including the Brighton Fringe Festival in May.
'Mid-calf, navy blue day dress with pearl buttons by Victor Stiebel. Dove-grey tweed jacket and fox stole by House of Hartnell. Hat by Elsa Schiaparelli. Perfect for luncheons, jaunts around town and spying on fascists.'
Lady Pamela, fashion columnist and socialite, is recruited by MI5 to keep notes on Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII, suspected to be colluding with the German Embassy. But Pamela suddenly realises that what began as an adventure has led to a deadly struggle for power in a world in the shadow of war.
★★★★ The List
"Dunn's phenomenal acting skills still make for a strong and entertaining show, especially when combined with the fantastic writing. The parallels with the current political situation in Europe are obvious but subtly acknowledged, and a powerful, emotional conclusion very nicely wraps up an otherwise action-packed storyline."
★★★★ Fest Mag
"Seamed stockings, spies and dinner at the embassy: there's an unapologetic glamour to Sarah Sigal's one-person play, which trips through the highest social echelons of pre-war London ... a little jewel of a period drama."
★★★★ UK Theatre Web
"What an absolute hoot of a show. Funny and clever, beautifully acted, well paced and sharply written. A genuinely funny piece delivered with great panache."
★★★★ Mumble Theatre
"A fresh script for an 80 year-old story."
Highly Recommended Show - Fringe Review
"Lively, beautifully crafted writing performed by a sizzling storyteller ... It might be an historical story but Lady Pamela's conclusion 'there is a danger in taking peace for granted' is bang up to date."
