Theatre and drama group based in Marlborough, Wiltshire
‘The Government Inspector’
Wednesday 6th November - Saturday 9th November
Town Hall, Marlborough, at 7.30pm
Our Autumn Production for 2013 is Nikolai Gogol’s famous comedy which hilariously satirises local government in pre-revolutionary Russia.
A comedy by a Russian playwright? Surely there's no such thing - Russian writers are always on about gloom and doom....!
Might this this echo your thoughts?Well, come and see 'The Government Inspector' by Nikolai Gogol at the Town Hall, 6th to 9th November, and watch the antics of a mayor and his corrupt officials in a Russian town miles from anywhere. This comedy of mistaken identity features gullible individuals, town gossips, corrupt officials and sycophantic citizens.
We witness proposals of marriage, sudden departures, a massive hoodwink, and a dramatic climax - all wonderful ingredients of hilarious comedy.
Directed by David Sherratt, the cast includes Tony Michael, fresh from his triumph as Mr Shanks in 'Habeas Corpus', Ben Tarring who appeared last as Player King in the director's 'Wheels of Time', Clare Brown appearing again as a mayor's wife, as well as veterans Barry Mercer and John Yates.
Newcomers Evelyn Taylor, Cora Jackson, Tim Beckwith, Maddie Blackwell, David Walklett, Ruth Sparkes, Neal Cooper and Carys Muirhead all make their debuts with the Players in this production.
So, for a comedy dish, spiced with the pepper of gentle satire, come to the Town Hall in the first week of November, and remember to bring your friends!
