Show Information

Dubious political dealings, a rioting populace, mishandled money, panic – sound familiar?

The Government Inspector is one of the world’s most famous plays. Written in 1835 and set in Tsarist Russia, it is a classic satire on human vanity.

By turns hilarious and vicious in its exposé of corruption among those in power, this masterpiece seems made for the times we live in.

This fast-paced, raucously entertaining black comedy features an electrifying cast and live Balkanfused music including electric balalaikas and mouth organs!
