The Government Inspector
In a small Russian village, the local government officials are in a panic. Rumor has it that a government inspector is on his way to root out corruption. Now it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves as they try to cover their tracks before they all get sent to Siberia.
Mother Russia was never so funny as in this modern adaptation of Gogol’s classic farce. Witty, smart, and wildly satirical, Hatcher’s play “mines all the silly and pretentious insanity that defines bureaucratic crooks” [Huffington Post] The play premiered in 2008 at the Guthrie Theater.
