Sixth Form Russian Theatre Trip: The Government Inspector

I thoroughly enjoyed the play and its insight into the aspects of Russian culture which are flawed. The play followed a typical town in Russia and the extreme lengths the mayor of the town went to show the town in a bright light for a man who he thought was the inspector due to baseless rumours. It depicted the town in constant chaos and amongst this chaos, a stranger, who had been mistaken for the town inspector, was able to deceive people in the town into giving him money which he had no intention of returning. I enjoyed the humour of the play and the unique characters who were caught up in funny, tricky situations. The abrupt ending of the play truly conveys the views of Gogol and mocks Russian society.
