Yes, Prime Minister is an updated full length stage production of the popular TV sitcom. This telling satire on unscrupulous government reduced previous audiences to helpless hilarity.
BCP's 2022 version introduces Gemma Hacker as a female PM desperately attempting to deal with the machinations of Sir Humphrey Appleby whilst simultaneously trying to save the planet!
The UK is in crisis: debt is spiralling, unemployment is on the rise and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Prime Minister Gemma 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. When the Kumranistan Foreign Secretary makes a shocking request of Gemma’s Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation. But how will Gemma and her 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.
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.

Over drinks and snacks, cliches and fatuous small talk abound. The tension escalates as the marital strain between both couples surfaces. Susan's anxiety over Abigail's party accelerates as rock music permeate the room. As Beverly and Angela offer some supremely tactless remarks, reality breaks through the smugness when Laurence collapses.....
