Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre has been transformed into the infamous country residence of the British Prime Minister, for the Australian Premiere of the hilarious comedy Yes, Prime Minister.
Starring Philip Quast as the suave and cynical Cabinet Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby, Mark Owen-Taylor as the embattled Prime Minister Jim Hacker, and John Lloyd Fillingham and Jim’s hapless assistant, Bernard Woolley, the show commenced previews on January 31, 2012.
AussieTheatre.com’s David Wyatt attended a media call for the show and we are thrilled to bring our readers a special photo feature.
Written by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn (who both penned the original television series), the play is set to once more reveal the awkward marriage between civil servants and politicians.
