The Government Inspector

at Young Vic Theatre, London

This event has been and gone.

The news that a government inspector is due to arrive in a small Russian town sends its bureaucrats into a panicked frenzy.

A simple case of mistaken identity exposes the hypocrisy and corruption at the heart of the town in this biting moral satire.


The Young Vic Theatre Company

Conceived in the 1960s' spirit of iconoclasm and improvisation, The Young Vic opened in 1970 as a place in which younger directors, designers, actors, writers and technicians could work alongside the world's great theatre artists to present exciting productions at the lowest possible seat prices. Over the last forty years, the company has established a powerful reputation at home and abroad. In particular, the Young Vic has begun to be recognised as the major theatre in this country in which young directors can develop and practise their art.
