This?is one of the most successful plays in recent years.?The original writers, Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn have reunited for this new play based on the classic and much loved TV series with a new satirical take on Whitehall. Prime Minister Jim Hacker and his Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby are back, spinning out of control through the collapsing euro and austerity measures in a world of 24 hour news, Blackberrys and ?sexed up? dossiers.With the country on the brink of financial meltdown the PM is staring disaster in the face with his only apparent salvation in a morally dubious deal with the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan. Will Jim Hacker and his team of advisors be able to rescue the country from the edge?
Laughs galore in this comedy treat.
