The Government Inspector won critic over when it played at The Duke Theatre in 2017. This dramdy that highlights when all politics were local. Gogol’s deeplyIs a silly satire of rampaging self-delusion. When the crooked leadership of a provincial village discovers that an undercover inspector is coming to root out their commonplace corruption, the town weaves a web of bribery, lies, and utter madness. Acclaimed playwright Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation offers a hilarious reminder of the terrifying timelessness of bureaucracy and buffoonery.
