Agent of Influence: The Secret Life of Pamela More

Thu 4th – Sun 28th Aug 2016


“Lady Pamela tells a tale of glamour, intrigue, and espionage”





Fluff Productions


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.

After the critically acclaimed World Enough and Time by Sarah Sigal (Park Theatre 2014), Rebecca Dunn reprises her role as the beguiling Pamela More in this new piece. As writer Sarah Sigal comments, "some characters take on a life of their own." Pamela was always very demanding. Now she has her own show. And a Twitter account. Who knows what's next?

In the depths of a darkened bomb shelter, Lady Pamela tells a tale of adventure, espionage and intrigue, of glamorous cocktail parties, socialites and high fashion. This is a world where the news is filled with reports of economic crises, authoritarian governments and refugees fleeing war-torn countries.

From Jessica Beck, the director who brought Whiskey Tango Foxtrot to the Fringe in 2015, comes a journey of 1930s glamour and fear.
