Elections for the stage with Prime Minister wanted

Yes Prime Minister auditions at the Priory

The hunt is on for the next leader at No.10 as the Priory Theatre seeks out a star for its next political comedy.

Yes Prime Minister will play on the Kenilworth stage next spring - with a star needed to join the team in one of the first shows outside the West End. Kevin Coughlan from the theatre said: “With a general election fast approaching we thought that it would be a brilliant opportunity to open up the audition process.

“The show has just been released for amateur performance and we are one of the first in the area to stage it.

“We are keen to hear from any actor who would relish the chance to appear on stage.”

The comedy is based on the hit TV show, Yes Prime Minister with bags of political satire.

The UK is in crisis: debt is spiralling, unemployment is on the rise and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Jim Hacker, is at breaking point.

But help is at hand in the form of a complex deal that would entitle the government to a multi-trillion pound loan.

Political machinations, manipulations and an appeal for divine intervention ensue.

The play will run at the Priory from February 11 to 21 with rehearsals in early January.
