The Government Inspector

Penn Theatre Arts Program

February 13 – 16, 2020
Bruce Montgomery Theatre
Penn Student Shows

The corrupt government officials of a provincial Russian town are thrown into a panic when word arrives that their town is to  be investigated. How will they get the government inspector to  ignore the obvious corruption and make a good report back to  the capital? This classic satire from Nikolai Gogel is a hilarious look at unqualified people working to enrich themselves, and maybe not getting away with it.
