The Mayor, the Judge, the Chief of Police and a host of the crooked characters are in an awful tailspin as a visit from a government inspector looms large on their town. It’s all brown envelopes and bribes as this befuddled group frantically try to keep the show on the road at all costs. But could a case of mistaken identity sabotage their efforts?
Jimmy Fay directs a colourful cast in a new version of this magnificent Gogol satire. Enjoy a night of hilarity this Christmas at the Abbey Theatre, as Roddy Doyle takes his signature wit to Nikolai Gogol’s The Government Inspector.
