The Government inspector – May 15 at 3pm

Following Russia’s most recent invasion of Ukraine, many in the International Theater Companies of Amsterdam feel compelled to express solidarity and help raise funds.

Appropriately, we are taking part in a script-in-hand performance of The Government Inspector – probably the best known satire of acclaimed Ukrainian playwright Nikolai Gogol – at Mike’s Badhuistheater, in collaboration with the Badhuis International and the InPlayers.

Tickets available here

The play is a comedy of errors, satirizing human greed, stupidity, and the extensive political corruption of the Russian Colonial Empire, of which Ukraine was a part in 1830 . The corrupt officials of a small town, headed by the Mayor, react with panic to the news that an undercover inspector will soon be arriving in their town to investigate them.
