In one of the greatest - and funniest - classics of world theatre, the corrupt inhabitants of a provincial Russian village mistake an insignificant civil servant for a government inspector in disguise. In the ensuing panic, humanity is laid bare in all its vanity and greed. With a wild combination of slapstick farce and sharp social satire, this hilarious new adaptation gives fresh life to Gogol's comic masterpiece.
