The Government Inspector

2006-2007 National Theatre of Northern Greece
The Government Inspector - Nikolai Gogol
Launch: Lazaristes Monastery - Sokratis Karantinos Stage, 09/02/2007

In a provincial town of Russia, people expect the visit of a government inspector traveling incognito. A broken rogue, who finds resort in town, is coincidentally identified as the inspector. A series of hilarious episodes follow this fatal misunderstanding. Gogol, with his caustic humour, discloses the foolishness, servility, vanity, sabotage, profiteering, and hypocrisy inside the state mechanisms in the pre-revolutionary Russia as well as the decay of a whole society.
