As the lights flicker… it’s 1979 in Worsborough Dale. A letter arrives…

Overview

Announcing the arrival of a government inspector, incognito, and ready to root out the town’s rampant corruption, which sends the crooked council chairman and his bureaucrats into a panicked frenzy.

A web of lies and bribery follows in this comic satire of a small town’s utter madness, shadiness and self delusion.

Nobody is free from the taint of ravenous self-interest, bureaucracy, buffoonery and more. Their actions are held up to scorn and ridicule in this hilarious yet moral tale. irrational theatre presents a new play, adapted from Gogol’s great satire.
