Yes, Prime Minister

Directed by Alan Barret May 4th to 13th.

From the writers of the original television series Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, comes the equally sharply satirical 2010 stage version by Antony Jay & Jonathan Lynn.

Staring Powderkeg’s own talent and directed by life member Alan Barrett.

Cast includes: Stephen Andrews, Robert Wightwick, Gemma Francis & Warrick Smith as the Prime Minister.

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. 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.

Moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation. Political machinations, media manipulation and an appeal for divine intervention ensue.

Rehearsals have started and can’t wait to have a laugh with you!

Opens May 4th in Sunshine!
