Original Yes men bring a TV classic on to the stage
9:30pm Monday 27th February 2012 in Leisure
FOLLOWING two sell-out seasons in the West End, Yes, Prime Minister is coming to Cheltenham.
Original writers Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn, have reunited for this anniversary production.
Prime Minister Jim Hacker, played by Graham Seed (Nigel Pargetter – The Archers) and his Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby, played by Michael Simkins (Trial & Retribution) are back in this “hilarious” new play.
In a world of spin, BlackBerry smartphones and ‘sexed up’ dossiers, the PM is staring disaster in the face.
The country is on the brink of financial meltdown and the Government’s only apparent salvation comes from a morally dubious deal with the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan.
It runs at the Everyman Theatre from Monday to Saturday, March 3.
Performances take place at 7.45pm with matinees on Thursday and Saturday at 2pm.
Tickets cost between £10 and £25 are available from 01242 572573 or online at everymantheatre.org.uk.
