The Government Inspector is a classic satire of provincial bureaucracy, which only saw the stage after the personal intervention of Tsar Nicholas I.
A small, corrupt Russian town receives a letter informing them of the imminent visit of a government inspector travelling incognito. When a passing civil servant is mistaken for the inspector, panic soon sets in.
Translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.
