‘Yes Minister’

Sept. 29: “Yes Minister” is currently running at the Prospect Playhouse Theatre, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday through Oct. 1. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $25. “Yes Minister” is a satirical look at the early career of Jim Hacker MP – a newly appointed cabinet minister in the fictional Department of Administrative Affairs at Whitehall.

Hacker goes through various struggles to formulate and enact legislation or effect departmental changes that are continually opposed by the British Civil Service; particularly by his Permanent Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby. His Principal Private Secretary Bernard Woolley is usually caught between the two.
