Following two sell-out West End seasons, Yes, Prime Minister goes on tour.
The original writers of the classic BBC TV series, Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn have reunited for this anniversary production and now the Prime Minister Jim Hacker played by Graham Seed (Nigel Pargetter - The Archers) and his Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby played by Michael Simkins (Mamma Mia, Above Suspicion) are back in this hilarious new play.
In a world of spin, BlackBerrys and 'sexed up' dossiers, the PM is staring disaster in the face. The country is on the brink of financial meltdown and the Government's only apparent salvation comes from a morally dubious deal with the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan. Will Jim Hacker and his team of advisors be able to rescue the country from the edge?
**** 'The audience loved it. A hit'
'Jim Hacker and Sir Humphrey are back in truly vintage form. As politically sharp and blissfully funny as ever'
