Simon Callow and Clive Francis star in the world première of I'm Sorry Prime Minister I Can’t Quite Remember, at The Lowry in Salford July 20–25.

It marks the 40th anniversary of the classic TV series Yes, Minister.

Jonathan Lynn, one of the original writers of the hit series, has penned and will direct.

Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Amadeus, Shakespeare in Love) is Jim Hacker and Francis (An Inspector Calls, Les Blancs, The Crown) Sir Humphrey Appleby.

The final chapter continues its biting satire on the political classes and provides a fitting farewell to the Hacker years. Former Prime Minister Jim Hacker longs to see out his days from his grand Master’s Lodge at Hacker College, Oxford. The College Fellowship and students have different ideas and eviction looms.
