Eclipses Group Theater New York presents The Government Inspector, an original adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's famous satirical comedy.|
The production transfers the action to Greece in 1989, a time when the bigwigs of Greek politics and business are dragged through the courts to answer for years of scandals. In one sleepy small town in the countryside, however, the locals continue to carry out their petty scams with nary a care in the world. Suddenly, news of the impending arrival of a government inspector sends them into a panic. What is in store for the plays characters? Will the inspector expose their misdeeds? Will they pull the wool over his eyes, buy his silence or otherwise escape his clutches unscathed?
One of the world's best-known and loved plays, The Government Inspector is a hilarious and merciless satire that exposes corruption, stupidity and greed.
Eclipses' production is presented in Greek, with English supertitles.
