The Government Inspector at the Abbey

Nikolai Gogol's famous 19th century satire of rural Russian corruption and officialdom 'The Inspector General' is given an Irish spin by Roddy Doyle - a portrait of incompetent, embezzling and bungling politicians and bureaucrats with the language of modern Ireland? Surely not! Check out Doyle's Irish Times article on the challenges of adapting Gogol.

Even better, check out 'The Government Inspector', now playing in the Abbey Theatre!
