A Co-Production with
Furious Theatre Company
July 28 - August 26, 2012
A World Premiere Adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's
The Inspector General
Original adaptation by Oded Gross
Directed by Stefan Novinski
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 more relevant today than ever. Re-envisioned as a cutting, tragic farce with influences from Monty Python and Brazil, this painful, hilarious investigation of people’s characters gone to seed makes for hysterical comedy with a good dose of soul.
