Comedy fans are expected to flock to Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre from Tuesday 2 to Saturday 6 October 2012, when Northern Broadsides and Harrogate Theatre companies present A Government Inspector; a play by Nikolai Gogol adapted by Deborah McAndrew.
Combining misdeeds, misadventure and mistaken identity, this hysterically funny tale sees a flashy young stranger mistaken for a government inspector in a small Pennine town, which strikes fear into the councillors due to their corrupt goings-on.
When the bribes, backhanders and brown envelopes start flying, the stranger, who has an eye for a quick buck, takes full advantage of the situation, with eye-wateringly funny results that are sure to have the Cheltenham crowd rolling in the aisles.
Organisers said: ‘If you like your humour broad, your references topical, your heart warmed and your brass ‘live’, look no further than A Government Inspector.
‘Absurdly funny, clever and strangely familiar, you’ll never trust your local authority again… if you ever did that is!’
