Anderson Theatre presents "The Government Inspector"
February 23, 2013 at 8–10 pm[2h]
In this fast-paced version of Nikolai Gogol's 1836 farce, directed by Henry MacCarthy, the inhabitants of a small town mistake a low rank civil servant staying at the local Inn for a Government inspector in disguise. Chaos endures when the town's officials bend over backwards to impress the "inspector” and save their jobs.
This comic masterpiece is a hilarious social satire on the corruption of elected officials filled with slapstick comedy and physical humor.
