Everyman Theatre presents The Government Inspector.
26 – 30 November 2019.
Nikolai Gogol’s masterpiece is one of the most famous comedies in theatre and in John Byrne’s sharp adaptation has lost none of its satirical bite. Corruption is rife in a small rural town and the Mayor and his council mistake a penniless clerk as an undercover government inspector. They panic – and become victims of their own stupidity and greed.
