Bribes, mis-directed contracts, mis-allocation of public money, fiddled expenses. Panic. Sound familiar?
A penniless nobody from the big city arrives in a small town, where he is mistaken for the all-powerful government inspector by its corrupt and self-serving officials. They all have to work together fast to clean up their act – shredding incriminating documents, issuing gagging orders, blacking out the media.
The Government Inspector’s hilarious and vicious expose of the corruption of (petty) power pulls off that rare trick of providing belly laughs and food for thought in a single entertaining evening at the theatre.
“An exuberantly funny and inventive show…hilariously powerful and raucous live music”
