Yes, Prime Minister
“Yes, Prime Minister” was a virtual sell-out in Singapore.So we added an additional performance to avoid disappointing our patrons. The enduring popularity of “Yes Prime Minister” was reflected in the need to add an extra performance for our production in Singapore to cope with demand for tickets.

Eden Hall lunch
One of the great pleasures of producing our plays in Singapore is the now customary, informal luncheon for the cast, stage management and producers at the residency of the British High Commissioner, Eden Hall.
Generously hosted by Anthony and Julie Phillipson (although H.E. was away on this occasion!) it is always a most pleasurable event and this time was no exception.
Thank you to our fabulous hostess!
