The Inspector is coming

by admin

This January, Blue Sky Theatre will present outdoor performances of The Government Inspector.

It’s 1937 on a small Greek island, and the corrupt mayor learns that an undercover inspector is coming to investigate how his town is run.

It’s not good. Not good at all. So, the officials decide to clean up their act.

When a stranger arrives, they hurriedly shower him with food, wine and a good time, hoping he’ll pay no heed to what’s happening.  After all, every man has his price.

But are they bribing the wrong man?

This riotous portrait of rampaging self-destruction is a witty adaption of Nikolai Gogol’s classic comedy. We all know how badly politicians can behave, so prepare for groans of familiarity and lots of laughs.

Blue Sky Theatre’s productions in gardens continue to delight each summer.  The gardens open from 4.30pm, with the show at 6.30pm, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy a picnic washed down with a drink from the bar.
