Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn’s Yes, Prime Minister, 14th to 17th November 2018

Synopsis

The UK is in crisis: debt is spiralling, unemployment is on the rise and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Prime Minister Liz 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 Liz’s Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation. But how will Liz and her 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.

The Curtain Call Awards, 31st January 2015

It was the South Coast’s answer to the Academy Awards.

A sold out crowd of 500 thespians, crew and theatre lovers gathered for Hampshire’s own Oscars, the Daily Echo Curtain Call Awards.

Although, sadley, they didn't win, the following nominations were made for members of the Bursledon Players:

Gemma Mabeley – Director of How The Other Half Loves, Bursledon Players. A debut that managed to coax convincing performances from all the cast.

Gemma Mabley – Pike in Dad’s Army, Bursledon Players. Very endearing, particularly in devotion to Cpt Mainwaring.

Julie Bowring – Mary in How the Other Half Loves, Bursledon Players. Meekness personified.
