Local Events Yes, Prime Minister 10 - 20 May

Yes, Prime Minister

From the writers of the original television series Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, comes the equally sharply satirical stage version, seen at the Festival Theatre, Chichester in 2010 and the Gielgud Theatre, London, in 2011, followed by a tour in 2012.

The UK is in crisis: debt is spiraling, 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. 

Showing at Elmwood Auditorium, Aikmans Road, Merivale Wednesday 10 May to Saturday 20 May.

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.
