The Government Inspector! Arriving December 11!
The UR International Theatre Program ventures into online territory with its inaugural production adapted, designed and directed specifically for the online world! Join us for a contemporary take on Nikolai Gogol's celebrated political satire The Government Inspector. With a cast of 47, including students and alumni located across the US and as far away as Guatemala and China, The Government Inspector is considered the greatest theatrical comedy written in the Russian language. An hilarious satire on the (alas) all too familiar human traits of self-dealing, corruption, greed, and abuse of power, The Government Inspector will seem all too familiar, while making you laugh and think. The production--a truly global intergenerational theatrical endeavor--opens December 11, and streams through December 13. Free and open to all (be advised though, some saucy language is involved!). How to watch info here!

But has he? And who is the person whose recent arrival has got the townspeople up in arms? Is he who he says he is? Will he unmask the corrupt town officials and expose the underbelly of the community? Or can he be won over by gifts and bribes and, if it comes to it, love?Learn More
