The much loved Jim Hacker and Sir Humphrey Appleby are brought back to the stage by original writer Jonathan Lynn in this final chapter of the Yes, Minister series.

I’m Sorry Prime Minister... finds the pair facing up to life after their exit from public service. Holed up in his new home at Hacker College, Oxford, Jim finds himself, as ever, in the midst of a set of problems mainly of his own making. Unsure of how to cope, he calls on his old and not so loyal Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby.

What ensues carries all the hallmark comedy of this classic partnership as well as being a touching portrait of two old sparring partners trying desperately to figure out the modern world and what their place is in it.

Clive Francis plays the PM's former Permanent Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby. Clive has performed at the National Theatre (A Small Family Business, Tis Pity She’s A Whore, Never So Good and Les Blancs) and at the RSC (Three Hours after Marriage, Troilus and Cressida, and A Christmas Carol). 

One of the best-loved British comedies of all time, Yes, Minister was a political satire sitcom written by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn, first aired on BBC2 from 1980 to 1984. A sequel, Yes, Prime Minister, ran for 16 episodes from 1986 to 1988. A hugely successful stage play entitled Yes, Prime Minister was premiered in the West End in 2010.
