Yes, Prime Minister
04 - 12 Aug - Capitol Theatre
Presented by Tamworth Dramatic Society
A comedy by Antony Jay & Jonathan Lynn
Taking the mickey out of the pompous and pretentious!
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. But 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.
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. But 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.
“A telling satire…this updated stage version of the TV sitcom reduces its audience to helpless hilarity” The Telegraph
From the writers of the original television series Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, comes the equally sharply satirical stage version hilariously produced by Tamworth Dramatic Society.
You’ll cry laughing, in fact you may find it impossible to stop!
