The Government Inspector at the New Wolsey is simply a brilliant and clever production. The story is a comedy drama, with elements of crime, that is based on a book by Nikolai Gogol, about a Mayor in a small Russian town, who receives a notice that a Government Inspector is coming to inspect his somewhat-shambles of a town. In which he has been slacking in completing official duties, there are health hazards at the hospital, the soldiers don’t have matching uniforms, the school’s a war zone, jobs are incomplete and several people dislike him as he isn’t exactly the nicest of people. Bribing the inspector seems the only way forward… but it all gets a little out of control, in the case of a slight identity fraud!
