Summary

Yes, Minister, and the equally successful sequel Yes, Prime Minister captured a niche in the political consciousness of the nation. First broadcast thirty years ago, the original writers of these classic series have reunited to create a bang up to date Yes, Prime Minister for the stage.

Yes, Prime Minister premiered in the Festival Theatre, Chichester, in May 2010.
