About the play
In this brilliant 1836 Russian satire, corrupt officials and the mayor of a small town are panic-stricken by the incipient arrival of an incognito inspector sent by the government to investigate their misdeeds. They mistakenly believe a buffoonish yet crafty young man is the dreaded government sleuth and seek to bribe him. The young man, seeing an opportunity for personal financial gain, embarks on a mission to take advantage of their rampant fraudulency and stupidity. With great originality and humor, this play confronts the timeless plague of unscrupulous politicians.
