A Government Inspector
By Nikolai Gogol
Adapted by Fergus Woods Dunlop

The Mayor of a small town is in a cold sweat. News has reached him of an imminent investigation by a high-ranking government official who is travelling incognito – The Government Inspector!

The town’s officials are thrown into a panicked frenzy. They waste no time covering up the misdirected contracts, misuse of public money, the bribes, fiddled expenses, abuses of office… Sadly this satirical comic masterpiece remains every bit as relevant almost 200 years later.

This new adaptation by New Old Friends’ Feargus Woods Dunlop respectfully updates the piece, bringing a modern sensibility to the nineteenth century Russian masterpiece. Produced by Bath Spa Productions the new script has been tailored specifically to the talented cast of graduating third year BA Acting and BA Theatre, Festival and Events Production students at Bath Spa University.
