The Government Inspector
    By Nikolai Gogol

    19:30, Mon 29th – Tue 30th November 2010 at Fitzwilliam College Auditorium
    Michaelmas Week 8

    FitzTheatre puts together a re-enactment of Nikolai Gogol's The Government Inspector, a satirical comedy based on a case of mistaken identity. The play is a comedy of errors, satirising human greed, stupidity, and the extensive political corruption of Imperial Russia.

    The Governor gains news of the impending visit of a government inspector. This worries him because of the amount of corruption taking place in his town. Khlestakov, a civil servant, happens to have arrived in St Petersburg two weeks prior. He is immediately mistaken to be the dreaded inspector, and comedy ensues as the Governor and his town become overrun with this case of mistaken identity.
