Gogol’s hilarious satire is often considered the funniest and most biting Russian play of the 19th

century. When a provincial Russian town mistakes the wrong man as an inspector from the central

government, bribery overflows; but the smiles turn to stunned disbelief as the action builds to one

of the most famous endings in theatre. We are pleased to present an adaptation produced at the

Guthrie Theatre in 1973.
