Jane Bond

is blonde and dangerous...

You’ll be shaken and stirred as award-wining comedy duo Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding get into Bondage in this pacey pastiche as refreshing as a twist of lemon in a bone-dry Martini.

Jane has her work/life balance sorted, juggling being a supermum with her role as Commander Jane Bond, fighting the forces of evil armed only with a clutch bag packed with girly gadgets –
her compact a miniature satellite dish, her perfume spray a truth drug, and her lipstick a pop-up helicopter. Oh, and going blonde helped too.

Miss Moneypenny’s gone decimal, but do look out for the gorgeous Bunny Galore, and in a LipService first, a stunt man, who doubles unconvincingly as Jane in drag to do manly stuff while Maggie pops out to give the kids their tea. 

Jane Bond is a co-production with The Dukes, Lancaster and is touring as from September 2007 and again in Spring 2008.

Written and performed by Maggie Fox & Sue Ryding

"Prepare to be shaken with laughter"

-The Stage

"Directed with pace by Mark Chatterton"

-The Stage

"The audience certainly found it entertaining"

-The Stage

"The wonderful thing about this hilarious comedy duo is their formula for laughter"

-What's on Stage

"This popular duo have been performing together since 1985, but their act is not stale or jaded. In fact, judging by their energy in this high-spirited production, they are both cooking on gas mark five! The affection in which they send up their subject matter keeps you coming back for more"

-What's on Stage

"Ad-libbing and pulling faces at members of the audience, these two are having a ball and it’s completely infectious. On the night I attended, the audience was in raptures. It’s no surprise really as Jane Bond is a pure delight; double-0 "Comedy" Heaven."

-What's on Stage

"Maggie and Sue's own secret weapon in all this silliness is stuntman Martin Tucker, who unconvincingly doubles for Jane in various exhausting spins, kicks and stunts."

-Manchester Evening News

"It’s all quite bonkers, of course, but hugely enjoyable."

-Manchester Evening News

"The pair work at breakneck speed sprinkling the stage with dry humour and pausing long enough for the audience to get the jokes."

-Manchester Evening News
