Written by Edward Taylor and John Graham and directed by Fred Petersen, the UK comedy features a woman who may be the daughter of the Prime Minister or the Chancellor and a Parliamentary Secretary who could be the Prime Minister’s son.

Morris, who plays Prime Minister George Venables, said there was never a dull moment in the play.

‘There’s always something happening, very quickly, which keeps the audience on their toes,’ he said.

‘It appealed because it’s a farce and has plenty of pace, which makes it good fun.’

Petersen said chose to direct Pardon Me, Prime Minister because of its similarities with the television series Yes Minister.

‘But even though the play is similar, it’s much funnier because of its improbable situations,’ he said.

‘We all know parliamentarians can be boring and have a lack of humour in performing their duties but this play takes them on a journey of revelations about their younger lives and facts they would prefer not to be revealed.’
