Yes, Minister and the equally successful sequel Yes, Prime Minister captured a niche in the political consciousness of the nation. First broadcast 30 years ago, the original writers of these classic series have reunited to create a bang-up-to-date Yes, Prime Minister for the stage.

Spin, BlackBerrys, sexed-up dossiers, sleaze, global warming and a country on the brink of financial meltdown form the backdrop to mayhem at Chequers.  The Foreign Minister of the oil-rich Kumranistan, with an offer of a pipeline deal that could entitle the financially embattled government to a multi-trillion-pound loan, makes a shocking request of Jim’s Private Secretary, Bernard Woolley, and reconciling the two antithetical positions of moral consideration and the nation’s economic future put Jim Hacker, Bernard, Sir Humphrey and Special Adviser Claire Sutton into a panic.  Political machinations, media manipulation and an appeal for divine intervention ensue. 

From the writers of the original television series Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister comes the equally sharply satirical stage version, directed for the Frankston Theatre Group by David McCall (pictured). Charles Spencer wrote in the Daily Telegraph: “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.”
