The Government Inspector

Friday 3 May 7.30pm - Saturday 15 June 7.30pm

Alexander ‘Sandy’ Marshall, Bird & Carrot, David Luff and Wild Yak present ‘There’s no money in honesty!’

A comedy about hypocrites, hysterics and hustlers.

An over-privileged, vainglorious liar is mistaken for a high-ranking government inspector by the corrupt local officials of a parochial town. Desperate to cover up their crimes and escape censure, the town’s Governor and his cronies pull out all the stops to try and bribe this dishonest buffoon with money, wine and women.

The Government Inspector is Nikolai Gogol’s masterful comedy about how corrupt power destroys itself, exposing the tragi-comic consequences of collective delusion and the swindlers who would exploit it.
