THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR
The corrupt, self-seeking officials of a small town in Tzarist Russia mistake a penniless clerk for a Government Inspector, and chaos, recrimination, and retribution ensue. This classic satire on human vanity and the corruption of elected officials is infused with the very modern problem of financial inequality making it more relevant today than ever. Re-envisioned as a cutting, tragic farce, this painful, hilarious investigation of people’s characters gone to seed makes for hysterical comedy with a good dose of soul.
 
Contains mild expletives, brief violence, 'bawdy' humor.  Parents of children under 12 and political conservatives cautioned.
