An inspector calls
MISDEEDS, misadventure and mistaken identities lead town councillors on a merry dance in the latest comedy to hit the Everyman stage next week.
A Government Inspector brings theatre company Northern Broadsides to the Cheltenham venue for their debut visit, from Tuesday to next Saturday.
Written by Russian dramatist Nikolai Gogol, the play is a comedy of errors, satirizing human greed, stupidity, and political corruption.
Transposed from Imperialist Russia to a small Pennine town, the story centres around corruption and greed in the local council.

A flashy young stranger is mistaken for the Government Inspector. The town's unscrupulous councillors, fearing discovery of their corrupt goings-on, do all they can to ingratiate themselves.
Bribes, backhanders and brown envelopes abound and the stranger, who has an eye for a quick buck, takes full advantage with hilarious results. Northern Broadsides breathes life and vigour into this barmy story, accompanied by a real life brass band and a cast of fine comic actors.
Absurdly funny, clever, and strangely familiar, you'll never trust your local authority again – if you ever did that is.
Performances start at 7.45pm with a 2pm matinee on Saturday and tickets cost from £10 to £25 from 01242 572573.
