This version of A Government Inspector is a Yorkshire take on Gogol’s 1836 fantastical Russian satire. The setting is here transposed to a small northern town in the twenty-first century, geographically and culturally remote from the centre of government.

Into a small Pennine town a mysterious stranger is mistaken for a government inspector. Fearing discovery of their corrupt goings-on, the town’s unscrupulous councillors attempt to ingratiate themselves. Bribes, backhanders and brown envelopes abound, and the young chap, who has an eye for a quick buck, takes full advantage with hilarious results.

Deborah McAndrew’s version of A Government Inspector goes beyond literal translation, but is absolutely faithful to Gogol’s stated intention to peel away the surface layers of ordinary people and expose the corruption beneath. It’s exuberant, brilliantly witty and original, and audiences will revel in the references to government officials’ expenses claims and women’s beach volley ball...

Northern Broadsides, one of the country’s finest and best-loved touring theatre companies, breathes life and vigour into this nearly 200-year-old story. Absurdly funny, clever and strangely familiar, this feels to be the next One Man Two Guvnors.

The production premieres at Harrogate Theatre from 7 - 22 September before embarking on an English national tour until December 1st.
