Scathing satire on bureaucracy and corruption. A great comedy that looks at the lengths petty officials will go to cover their inefficiency and minor crimes when a government inspector comes to call. First produced in 1836. In a small town at the back of nowhere corruption's rife and the Mayor and his cronies have got it made. Then they learn they're going to be subject to an undercover government inspection - and panic. Mistaking a penniless nobody for the inspector they swiftly fall victims to their own stupidity and greed. Horla's production of The Government Inspector
is a brand new look at Gogol's classic comedy that provides a poke in the eye to the establishment and features a cast of actor-musicians using a combination of live music, story-telling and dance.Performers Paul Vaughan Evans (Khlestakov), Ben Bradshaw, Hilary Burns, Dominic Currie, Patrick Farrell, Sarah Feathers, Ruth Gibson, Johanna Koivu, Alexander McConnell, Rebecca Naylor, Becky Wright.
