Yes, Prime Minister.

No, this is not --- exactly --- about the legendary and much loved 1980s series by Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay, but the new play by the same writers. While I am quite uncertain anyone could portray Jim Hacker like Paul Eddington did, or Humphrey Appleby like Nigel Hawthorne (who both died in the past fifteen years), or even the pedantic and often whimsical Bernard Whooley, originally played by Derek Fowlds, these are moments I wish I were still in London. Yes, Prime Minister, the play, will be showing this year, for a limited season, at the Gielgud Theatre in London.
