Season Dates: Wednesday 2 to Saturday 19 November.
The UK is in crisis: debt is spiralling, unemployment is on the rise and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by PM Jim Hacker, is at breaking point. But salvation may exist in the form of a complex pipeline deal with the oil-rich country of Kumranistan that would entitle the government to a multi-trillion pound loan. When the Kumranistan Foreign Secretary makes a shocking request of Jim’s Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation. But how will Jim and his team: Bernard, Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby, and Special Adviser Claire Sutton, reconcile the two? Political machinations, media manipulation and an appeal for divine intervention ensue.
Cast of six males and one female required. Auditions by appointment. Apart from the four well known characters from the television series there is the Kumranistan Ambassador, the Director General of the BBC and a BBC presenter.
