"The Government Inspector" is a hilarious comedy about locals in a small provincial town who learn of a surprise visit from an undercover government inspector sending them into a frenzied state of panic. Where is he? He could be anyone--even a penniless rake and his servant who takes advantage of the dishonest officials’ attempts at bribery and lies about his noble position. A town turned upside-down, will they discover who the real inspector is? Witty, smart and wildly satirical, "The Government Inspector" exposes the hypocrisy and corruption of the town with biting moral satire.
