Feilding Theatre

Nikolai Gogol's famous comedy The Government Inspector is an exceptionally hilarious farce. Set in a fictional small town in Russia overseen by a corrupt mayor and his deputy, this 124-year-old play offers a juicy smorgasbord of 19 distinct, yet preposterous, characters. The comedy stakes are raised through Roger Pulvers's terrific adaptation for two actors.

The action centres on the shallow and broke dandy Khlestakov, who is mistaken for a government inspector sent to scrutinise the town. The panicked mayor, and his frightened fleet of unprincipled town officials and businessmen, bombard Khlestakov with gifts including accommodation at the mayor's home, lavish food and drinks and plenty of money. Khlestakov, who eventually becomes aware of their misconception, even becomes engaged to the mayor's daughter.

Feilding Theatre is pleased to bring this NZ premier to our audiences for the 2017 season. Skilfully directed by Dan Mateer; wonderfully played by two seasoned actors Peter Doherty and Phil White. This is not to be missed.

Please note: The Action Is Continuous; There Is No Interval.

Because of a bereavement, we have postponed the shows on 9 & 10 June. Opening Night will now be Thurs 15 June. There is also a show on Thurs 29 June. Thank you for your understanding.
