This version of A Government Inspector is a Yorkshire take on Gogol's 1836 fantastical Russian satire. The setting is here transposed to a small northern town in the twenty-first century, geographically and culturally remote from the centre of government. Into a small Pennine town a mysterious stranger is mistaken for a government inspector. Fearing discovery of their corrupt goings-on, the town's unscrupulous councillors attempt to ingratiate themselves. Bribes, backhanders and brown envelopes abound, and the young chap, who has an eye for a quick buck, takes full advantage with hilarious results. Deborah McAndrew's version of A Government Inspector goes beyond literal translation, but is absolutely faithful to Gogol's stated intention to peel away the surface layers of ordinary people and expose the corruption beneath. It's exuberant, brilliantly witty and original, and audiences will revel in the references to government officials' expenses claims and women's beach volley ball... Northern Broadsides, one of the country's finest and best-loved touring theatre companies, breathes life and vigour into this nearly 200-year-old story. Absurdly funny, clever and strangely familiar, this feels to be the next One Man Two Guvnors. The production premieres at Harrogate Theatre from 7 - 22 September before embarking on an English national tour until December 1st.

This collection contains Gogol's three completed plays The Government Inspector, which satirises a corrupt society was regarded by Nabokov as the greatest play in the Russian language and is still widely studied in schools and universities: "I resolved to gather into one heap everything that was bad in Russia which I was aware of at that time, all the injustices being perpetrated in those places, and in those circumstances that especially cried out for justice, and tried to hold them all up to ridicule, at one fell swoop." (Nikolai Gogol) Marriage is a comedy about the business of matchmaking and matrimony; The Gamblers is an exoriating piece about the excesses of the Moscow aristocracy. "Two and two make five, if not the square root of five, and it all happens quite naturally in Gogol's world... Gogol was a strange creature, but then genius is always strange" (Vladimir Nabokov)

One of the most famous comedies in world theatre, Gogol's masterpiece has lost none of its bite. In a small town corruption is rife, and the Mayor and his cronies have got it made. So when they learn they are going to be subject to an undercover government inspection they panic. Mistaking a penniless nobody for the inspector they swiftly fall victims to their own stupidity and greed. A dazzling blend of preposterous characters and familiar situations, Nabokov called The Government Inspector the greatest play in the Russian language. A production of this version of the play opened at the Chichester Festival in June 2005 starring the comedian Alistair McGowan.

Abstract: The Government Inspector, by Nikolai1 Gogol, has also been translated into English under the titles The Inspector General, and The Inspector. The Government Inspector premiered at the Aleksandrinsky Theatre, in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 1836. The Government Inspector ridicules the extensive bureaucracy of the Russian government under the Tsar as a thoroughly corrupt system. Tsar Nikolai I, who was among the first to see the play, was said to have commented that the play ridiculed everyone--most of all himself2. Universal themes of human corruption and the folly of self-deception are explored through this drama of Russian life. The mayor's famous line, as he turns to address the audience directly, "What are you laughing at? Laugh at yourselves,"3 illustrates this theme, which is summed up in the play's epigraph, "If your face is crooked, don't blame the mirror." With this in mind, I designed the scenery for Nikolai Gogol's play, The Government Inspector, in accordance with director Dr. Beth Kattelman's concept statement and The Ohio State University's Theatre Department 2005-2006 season. The Deprtment chose the Milton Ehra and Fruma Gottshalk translation of the script (University of Chicago Press, 1980). All page numbers referred in this thesis are consistent with this translation. The design hinges on the idea of the hidden versus the façade, the idea of seeing only what you want to see. The description and analysis of the resultant scenic design is the subject of this thesis.
