The Government Inspector

It’s not good, gentlemen. That’s why I’ve gathered you all here. An inspector is coming…a government inspector!


Presented by Birmingham Repertory Theatre in association with Ramps On The Moon.

In a version by David Harrower.

The Mayor is in a cold sweat. News has reached him of an imminent visit from a Government Inspector. His fear is well-founded as he has been somewhat lacking in his official duties. Surely the only possible solution is bribery; it seems to have resolved many a sticky situation for the Mayor and his team in the past!

But a simple case of mistaken identity leads matters to spiral hysterically out of control. This is a fast, funny, bittersweet play that remains painfully relevant today. You won’t be able to help but laugh at the hilarious riot of lies, greed and consequences in this sidesplittingly brilliant masterclass in comedy!

Ramps On The Moon is a ground-breaking touring project that signals a step change in disability arts provision in the UK. Bringing together seven major theatre companies, it will change the way theatre made by and for Deaf and disabled people is seen. These companies are committed to putting Deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of their work; to accelerate positive change, and stimulate awareness of disability issues within arts and culture.

This production will contain a creative use of Audio Description, Captioning and British Sign Language in all performances. Please contact the Ticket Sales team for more information.
