Archives - The Government Inspector

by Nickolia V Gogol

Directed by David Shaw

Saturday 5th – Saturday 12th December 1970 in the Auditorium

A humorous, entertaining satire on Russian beaurocracy in the mid-nineteenth century. Each character is a single facet of a whole personality, expanded to life-size and then played for all its worth.

If you have seen the film The Inspector General then come along and see what Gogol really intended.
