CCM Mainstage Acting: 'The Government Inspector'
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
From the original by Nikolai Gogol
Richard E. Hess, director
When the locals in a small Russian hamlet learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for a surprise visit, a case of mistaken identity sends the whole village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. Part farce, part slapstick and wholly entertaining, this timely and spirited adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's classic play exposes the corruption of a provincial town with biting hilarity.
...one part farce, one part slapstick...and wholly entertaining...
