Thirty years ago the first episode of Yes, Minister was broadcast and went on to become television’s most successful political comedy ever. It and the equally successful sequel, Yes, Prime Minister, captured a niche in the political consciousness of the nation.
The original writers of Antony Jay & Jonathan Lynn have reunited for this anniversary production together with Prime Minister Jim Hacker, his Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby and his Principal Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, in the new Yes Prime Minister play.
The world, of course, has turned meanwhile. Now in Yes Prime Minister spin has become an art form and the blackBerry is the must-have accessory. Dossiers have been ‘sexed up’, the ‘special relationship’ put to the test and countless MPs have stood down to ’spend more time with their families’.
Heading the coalition government, the PM is staring disaster in the face. The country is on the brink of economic crisis and there is just one grain of hope - a morally dubious deal with the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan... But great institutions have a way of riding punches and bouncing back unscathed - will it prove so for Jim Hacker and his team of close advisors?
Winner of our Whatsonstage.com Awards 2011 for Best New Comedy Award, the show originally opened in autumn 2010 with Henry Goodman and David Haig at the Gielgud Theatre.
Following the UK-wide tour, acclaimed English actor Simon Williams (Sir Humphrey Appleby) and Olivier Award-nominee Richard McCabe (Prime Minister Jim Hacker) will reprise their roles in the West End for a limited run.
As an Associate Artist of the Royal Shakespeare Company since 1997, Richard McCabe is one of the UK’s most distinguished actors. He has performed in numerous productions for the RSC, National Theatre, Barbican and performed in playhouses throughout the country. He recently appeared at the Chichester Festival Theatre in Bingo: Scenes of Money and Death alongside Patrick Stewart and the double bill of Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound and Richard Sheridan’s The Critic. McCabe's recent TV roles include BBC One's Wallander and Spooks.
Simon Williams is best known and acclaimed for playing James Bellamy in the period drama Upstairs, Downstairs, Dr. Charles Cartwright in the sitcom Don't Wait Up and Sir Charles Merrick in medical drama Holby City. His numerous stage credits include most recently The Power Of Yes (Royal National), Hay Fever (Chichester Festival), The Deep Blue Sea (Tour/West End), The Old Country (ETT/West End) and The Constant Wife (Apollo).
