The Government Inspector by Nikolai Gogol
Directed by Desmond Gallant November 10 - 19
The Government Inspector is a laugh-out-loud, satiric comedy that takes aim at greed, stupidity and political corruption. Written in 1836, it remains a remarkably relevant jab at politicians who use government to line their own pockets. When Khlestakov, a lazy and conniving civil servant, is mistaken for an important government inspector, a town descends into a flurry of madness as the mayor and his cronies try to cover up their indiscretions and curry favor with the imposter.
