YES, PRIME MINISTER by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn
Presented by Andrew Guild, Simon Bryce and Tim Woods in Association with YPM (International) Ltd and Isaac Theatre Royal
Setting the Scene...
A lot has happened since the Rt Hon. Jim Hacker MP last walked the corridors of Whitehall. There’s a Global Financial Crisis, rising oil prices, minority governments, illegal immigrants, asylum seekers and global warming!
If that’s not enough to contend with, the 24 hour news cycle, constant bleating of mobile phones, endless emails and a new generation of spin doctors on Twitter means that even the most experienced Prime Minister needs solid and supportive advisors. Ably assisted by Cabinet Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby, and Principal Private Secretary, Bernard Woolley, these three most loved characters from the hit BBC series gather once more to sort out another very thorny problem.
Set in the present day, in the oak panelled drawing room at Chequers, the British Prime Minister’s official country residence, the embattled PM, Sir Humphrey and Bernard face their greatest challenge yet.
With the help and hindrance from inquisitive journalists, a new generation of special advisors, and an oil rich Foreign Minister and his Ambassador who have a most disturbing interest in Foreign Affairs, the play engages audiences with the best of comedy and the worst of politics!
This will be a very popular show so make sure that you get in early to secure the best seats!!!
