Synopsis

The UK is in crisis: debt is spiralling and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Prime Minister Jim Hacker, is at breaking point. Salvation may exist, however, in the form of a pipeline deal with oil-rich Kumranistan, entitling the government to a multi-trillion dollar loan.

But when Kumranistan makes a shocking request, morals clash with the nation's economic future: political machinations, media manipulation and administrative chaos ensue.

From the writers of the original TV series comes this sharply satirical stage version, first seen at Chichester in 2010.

"Left me crying with laughter....it became physically impossible to stop laughing". (Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph)
