BWW Review: THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR, Birmingham Rep Theatre, March 23 2016
by Jenny Ell - Mar 25, 2016

With an original publication date back in 1836, Nikolai Gogol's satirical play The Government Inspector is certainly not new writing.

When a well-dressed and seemingly charming gentleman Khlestakov arrives, the townsfolk all jump to the conclusion that he is the Inspector. But is he? (more...)
