Dubious political dealings, a rioting populace, mishandled money, panic – sound familiar? 

Communicado Theatre Company in co-production with Aberystwyth Arts Centre

“This Government Inspector is not good – it’s great. Every theatrical element is used to one glorious end: to make the audience laugh” The Observer

A penniless nobody from the big city arrives in a small town, where he is mistaken for the all-powerful government inspector by its corrupt and self-serving officials. They all have to work together fast to clean up their act – shredding incriminating documents, issuing gagging orders, blacking out the media.

The Government Inspector’s hilarious and vicious expose of the corruption of (petty) power pulls off that rare trick of providing belly laughs and food for thought in a single entertaining evening at the theatre.

“An exuberantly funny and inventive show…hilariously powerful and raucous live music” The Scotsman
