The Government Inspector

Presented by Shifting Sands.

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 to cover up the misdirected contracts, misuse of public money, the bribes, fiddled expenses, abuses of office… corruption that has been going on for years!

Matters spiral hysterically out of control when they believe that a stranger in the town is the real Government Inspector.

The Government Inspector written in 1835 by Gogol is an hilarious satire about corruption in a world where, increasingly desperate to hide their wrongdoings and keep the supposed Government Inspector happy, everyone loses their moral compass.

WHY? An updated version Gogol’s classic satire - faithful to the themes of the original. Expect engaging, accessible, exhilarating theatre

John-Luke Roberts: All I Wanna Do Is [FX: GUNSHOTS]

One of the Edinburgh Fringe's most celebrated talents of recent times sets out on his first full national tour.

John-Luke Roberts' show this year was a complete sell-out run and one of the most talked about shows of the festival: a dizzying avant-garde ride through the mind of a gifted comic-philosopher. One with a blue moustache. Who thinks far more about the Spice Girls than anyone should. A masterclass in prop, clown, costume and Mel C-themed comedy.

And that's all we can tell you in the brochure, because his stupid title takes up the rest of the allotted space.

Suitable for ages 16+ years.

'An impeccably choreographed, giddily inventive, turbo-charged hour' ★★★★ The Telegraph

'A hit' ★★★★ The Times

'Killer gags... glorious idiocy' ★★★★ The Guardian

'Mind warping hour which follows through brilliantly on its own absurd logic...relentlessly funny' ★★★★ The List
