Government Inspector by Nikolai Gogol
Mon 23rd – 28th May, 2011
Warwick Arts Centre
One half of The Mighty Boosh’s duo comic actor Julian Barrett will star alongside Smack The Pony’s Doon Mackichan in a new production of this glorious Russian comedy, which is a co-production between The Young Vic and Warwick Arts Centre.
The plot centres around the arrival of a government inspector in a small Russian town, which sends its bureaucrats into a panicked frenzy. A simple case of mistaken identity exposes the hypocrisy and corruption at the heart of the town in this biting moral satire.
This exciting and star-packed production will be showcased exclusively at Warwick Arts Centre in May before it opens in London at the Young Vic later in the year.
