Top political comedy to grace Swan stage

Worcester Editorial 1st Feb, 2020   0

A TRIBUTE to one of the best political comedies to grace the small screen is on offer when members of the Swan Theatre Amateur Company (STAC) take to the stage for their version of Yes, Prime Minister.

Yes, Prime Minister is a funny and thought-provoking political satire based on the successful television series which captured the political consciousness of the nation.

Writers Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn then created a stage comedy in which the Prime Minister, Jim Hacker is faced with the problems of immigration, sex-trafficking, energy, Europe and sleaze, aided or hindered by his civil servants, Sir Humphrey Appleby and Bernard Woolley.

Director Paul Bellamy said: “It is always a privilege and a pleasure to work with STAC and this wonderful play has given us hours of fun in the rehearsal room.

Members will take to the stage at the Swan Theatre from February 26 to 29

Call the Worcester Live Box Office 01905 611427 for more. Visit the Swan Theatre from 6.45pm for tickets for that night’s performance only.
