Chad A Keller said it's a great idea.. It's been done and redone for a hundred years for a reason it's a great idea.. A classic Satire Susan R Murray In Gogol's time in Russia corruption was found in every arm of the government. Petty bureaucrats often pocketed money that was intended for public works. The play exposes backwater greed and corruption by showing how thoroughly ingrained bribery and lobbying are in to the culture of smalltime government off. "First rate comedy" according to Work-in-Progress. Gogol would be proud of this adaptation. Hatcher greatly improved on the original. It is witty, naughty, and makes an almost-200-year-old text truly accessible to contemporary audiences. Note that some of the humour is quite adult.

The ever-topical satire of small-town corruption and cravenness.

" 'Two-and-a-half hours of sheer theatrical delight that is, if anything, even more relevant today - in this age of relentless municipal self-promotion and image-building - than it was when Gogol wrote it, more than 170 years ago.' - The Scotsman"
