Photo Flash: THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR Comes to Seattle Shakespeare Company

When small town officials mistake an inventive clerk for an undercover inspector sent to root out corruption, the whole village flies into a tailspin. A comic web of bribery, lies, and rampaging self-delusion entangles everyone in chaos.
