About The Government Inspector

The play’s satirical commentary on corrupt officials and bureaucracy explores the ever increasing greed and self-delusion that comes with power.

A case of mistaken identity plays out when an arrogant and deceitful individual is wrongly believed to be a top government inspector. In order to avoid being exposed for their wrongdoings, the Governor of the town and his associates resort to any means necessary, including bribing the fraudulent individual with money, wine, and women.

Please bear in mind

This production contains brief apperances of blood and comic violence, and is recommended for ages 12+.
