Broadsides Inspector calls on Liverpool
Northern Broadsides brings its new version of Gogol’s classic satire The Government Inspector to Liverpool Playhouse this coming month.
Gogol’s classic comedy of errors about corruption in a small town has been brought roaring into 21st Century England, and is on at the Playhouse from November 13-17.
In typical Broadsides style, the play features a troupe of actor-musicians to incorporate music as an integral part of the show.
This new adaptation relocates to a small Pennine town, starting when a mysterious stranger is mistaken for a government inspector. Fearing discovery of their corrupt goings-on, the town’s unscrupulous councillors attempt to ingratiate themselves.
