Thirty years on from the first series, the original writers have reunited to produce an up-to-date Yes, Prime Minister for the stage. Watch as the Prime Minister tries to deal with problems of immigration, sex trafficking, energy, Europe and sleaze aided (or hindered) by his civil servants. An uproariously funny yet thought-provoking play, this is a wicked political satire…
