Once upon a time...

When the Conservative parliamentary candidate arrives in Deal with a big bag of gold to fight the 1880 by-election, expect fun, fraudulence (and flags) to follow…

I came across this amazing and little known story about Deal’s colourful past some years ago and approached my friend, the writer Carole Hayman for ideas about how it could be dramatised.

Carole’s skill and unique perspective has developed the initial idea into a wider ranging piece which makes contemporary parallels that resonate in our modern day lives.
