Everyman Theatre presents The Government Inspector
26 – 30 November 2019
Performances at 7.30pm. Saturday matinee at 2.30pm
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.
