Written by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn, the original writers of the classic BBC TV series, Yes, Prime Minister, brings us yet more hilarious satire and farcical performances from the corridor of power.
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. However, 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. 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.
Swanage Repertory Season lasts for 3 weeks in August with 3 shows as part of the unique ambition to return repertory theatre to this local community of Dorset. Yes, Prime Minister, The Secret Garden, and The Game’s Afoot are popular shows for everyone of all ages to enjoy.
