The Government Inspector. March 2008
Guildburys is one of Surrey’s foremost amateur theatre companies and we were delighted to be invited by The Mayor of Guildford, to perform The Government Inspector at the Electric Theatre in aid of his chosen charity, the Halow Project.
From Emma Cunningham for and on behalf of the Trustees of the Halow Project
Thank you so much for all the hard work that you put into your fabulous production of ‘The Government Inspector’ It was an outstanding one off performance for my charity, made all the more special by the quality of the acting and the humour of the cast. The Mayors and chairmen of the authoriities who supported the event have all said how much they enjoyed it & how appropriate your choice of play was ! Please pass on a big thank you to everyone.
In the company newsletter, the Guildbury chairman wrote :
Thanks to all Guildburys who contributed to The Government Inspector at its final special performance. The Halow Project informs us that our evening alone raised over £1,100 for the charity. Our work was appreciated by Guildford’s ebullient Mayor, Mike Nevins. He seemed to take Gogol’s satire on a Russian Mayor and council in good part and a total of eight Mayors, past and present were at the performance and the Chain Gang (apparently the collective noun for such a gathering) showed their enthusiasm loudly. A great success for the Mayor, the charity and for Guildburys.
