The Inspector – Phoenix Theatre

 

THE INSPECTOR
March 9 – 18, 2017
PHOENIX THEATRE, UVIC

Adapted by Linda Hardy
A West Coast political satire inspired by Nikolay Gogol’s The Government Inspector
Edited by Nicholas Guerreiro

Saturday March 18 at 2pm
with Sign Language Interpretation with Nigel Howard and Jen Ferris

Word arrives in Paradise (a “fictional” West Coast town) that a government inspector is coming incognito. Will the little improprieties of town’s mayor and officials be exposed? When they mistake a cunning ex-civil servant for the inspector, their schemes are turned against them. As the greed, corruption, and hypocrisy escalate, this satirical farce spins hilariously out of control. Inspired by local news stories, this adaptation of Gogol’s 19th-century comedy of errors is no less relevant – and possibly even more humorous! – when reimagined into our own political landscape.
