The Government Inspector Auditions

“THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR”

By Nikolai Gogol

Audition Date: Tuesday 19 th November

Show dates: Monday 6 th April – Saturday 11 th April 2020 at 7.30pm

Director: Pamela Whalley

There are many who say that this is one of the best plays ever written. Well, it is certainly hugely entertaining and very funny as it transcends time with its theme of greed and personal gain. Set in a remote town in Russia (strangely reminiscent of Louth…), cut off from any Government interference in St Petersburg, corruption is rife. But then people get news of a Government Inspector on his way to town – and the mayhem begins…

The play demands a large ensemble cast. So whether you like a large part, walk on, a small part or just a bit of business, there’s something for you.

Come and join us and I can promise a lot of fun and satisfaction!
