The Hampstead Players 2018 Autumn Production

Gogol’s masterful comedy “The Government Inspector” satirises political corruption, greed and gullibility. In a provincial town in an autocratic state, the local party officials have been abusing their position, taking bribes and threatening citizens, all while letting the town’s infrastructure collapse. Their cosy world is shattered when they hear news of the arrival of a government inspector. But, far too quickly, they jump to conclusions as to who that inspector is…
