The Government Inspector Auditions

The Government Inspector by Nikolai Gogol

Audition Date Tuesday 19th November 7.30pm

Show dates Monday 6th - Saturday 11th April 2020 7.30pm

Director Pamela Whalley


There are many who say this is one of the best plays ever written. Well, it is certainly hugely entertaining and very funny. 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 they get wind of a Government Inspector on his way to the town and the mayhem starts.


The play demands a large ensemble cast. So whether you like a large part, a small part, a walk on, no lines at all or just a bit of business, it is up to you. Come and have a go and I can promise you a lot of fun and satisfaction.


P.S.  Don't worry about The Russian names we will shorten them as we go along.
