Yes Prime Minister: A Play free pdf "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. Spin, blackberries, sexed-up dossiers, sleaze, global warming and a country on the brink of financial meltdown form the backdrop to mayhem at Chequers as the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan makes a seriously compromising offer of salvation. Prime Minister Jim Hacker remains in power with his coterie of close advisors including Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby and Principal Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, but for how long? They govern a whole new world. "Yes, Prime Minister" premiered in the Festival Theatre, Chichester, in May 2010.
