Nikolai Gogol’s ‘The Government Inspector’ at The Abbey

Venue:  Abbey Theatre, 26 Lwr Abbey Street, Dublin 1 Website: www.abbeytheatre.ie  Price: from €13 Date: November 24th – January 21st Time: 7:30 p.m.

Continuing their run of irreverent, sometimes seditious productions, The Abbey Theatre will be staging ‘The Government Inspector’ from November 24th. The classic soviet-era satire by Nikolai Gogol, in which a low-level clerk is mistaken for a visiting government official, has been reworked by Roddy Doyle – the humour is ramped up, but the play about corruption and bureaucracy promises to be as caustic as ever.
