The Government Inspector (in German)
A town turned upside-down / by Nikolai Gogol

* abgespielt

arrow Tickets

Written in 1836, “The Government Inspector” is a wild comedy of errors. In the play Gogol shows us a strongly hierarchical and corrupt society riddled with submissiveness and delusions of grandeur. Gogol looks deep into the Russian provincial soul and paints a vivid portrait thereof, all set against the background of an unmanageable administrative apparatus, in which bribery and corruption are the order of the day.

The apparent arrival of a high-ranking official from Moscow – the “Government Inspector”, who is supposed to check that everything is in order – throws the whole town into a state of panic. As concerns rise that certain issues may come to light — the lack of hygiene in the local hospital, the extremely lax interpretation of the curriculum in the school, the absurd practices of the court — a raft of favours is granted, not without risk. This sets in motion a series of events that derails the whole corrupt system.
