The Government Inspector from 17 – 20 July open air at Merrist Wood in Surrey


The Government Inspector. Our 2019 summer show

Picture this : The unscrupulous Mayor of a small Russian town in the middle of nowhere is horrified to discover that he and his shady cronies are to be visited by a government official, travelling incognito.

Corruption is rife and their infighting and jockeying for position is manic; plots to bribe him with vodka and wads of roubles spiral into an epic frenzy.

The result is chaotic mayhem and masses of comedic delight.

Adapted from Gogol’s satirical and eccentric comedy, the plot inspired one of Fawlty Towers’ most iconic episodes, and this adaptation of the original truly sparkles.

Unmissable !
Performing at our Picnic Theatre at Merrist Wood, near Guildford in Surrey from 17-20 July, and touring from 26 – 30 August to the fabulous Minack Theatre under the stars in Cornwall.

An amateur production in association with Samuel French.
