HEADING the coalition government, the PM is staring disaster in the face…
Nope, it’s not another dour news report (this time), but the return of Yes, Prime Minister.
The smash hit production rolls into Milton Keynes Theatre from Monday, following a successful stay in the West End.
Michael Simkins stars as Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby and Graham Seed as Prime Minister Jim Hacker.
We join the PM as the country teeters on the brink of financial meltdown....trust us, this is comedy and not another glum day of political rambling.
The only prospect of salvation comes from a morally dubious deal with the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan but can Jim Hacker justify such unsavoury allies?
In a world of spin, Blackberrys and ‘sexed up’ dossiers, the PM and his advisors attempt to rescue the country from the edge – with deliciously comic consequences.
The unforgettable characters are in safe hands with Seed and Simkins.
Graham Seed is best known for his role as Nigel Pargetter in BBC Radio Four’s ‘The Archers’, a posotion he has held for the best part of 30 years.
An associate member of RADA, Michael Simkins has made many film and television appearances, and starred as Billy Flyn in successful musical Chicago from 2007.
Antony Jay and Jonathon Lyn, the original writers of the classic Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister series have received universal acclaim for this stage version.
Great institutions have a way of riding punches and bouncing back unscathed as we’ve all seen – but will this be the case for Jim Hacker?
If you want a night of politically sharp, blissfully funny comedy with all the drama, intrigue and satire of the television show then say ‘Yes’ to Yes, Prime Minister and book your tickets today.
