Yes, Prime Minister! - ACTING EDITION

6 Male, 1 Female

Antony Jay & Jonathan Lynn Price: $16.95

This stage adaptation based on the hugely successful TV comedy series is set in the Prime Minister's study at Chequers ...

The UK is in crisis - debt is spiralling, unemployment is on the rise and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Prime Minister Jim Hacker, is at breaking point

Salvation may exist in the form of a complex pipeline deal with the oil-rich country of Kumranistan that would entitle the government to a multi-trillion pound loan

But when the Kumranistan Foreign Secretary makes a shocking request of Jim’s Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation

So how will Jim and his team - Bernard, Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby, and Special Adviser Claire Sutton - reconcile the two?

Political machinations, media manipulation and an appeal for divine intervention ensue

“Left me crying with laughter ... the piece achieves one of those blissful peaks of great farce when it becomes physically impossible to stop laughing ... a smash hit if ever I saw one” ~ Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

“Hilarious ... Almost every line of this vivacious play challenges the audience to think against received opinion” ~ John Lahr, The New Yorker
