The Government Inspector

Open 10th July 2020 - 25th July 2020

  • Directed by Andrew Cockroft-Penman
  • Written by Nikolai Gogol
This play is a comedy of errors, satirizing human greed, stupidity and the extensive political corruption of Imperial Russia. The self-serving mayor is in panic mode since discovering the imminent arrival of a government inspector. Terrified that he will be found out and hounded, he puts every local bureaucrat and family member into overdrive to impress, placate and bribe the bigwig.
