The Government Inspector

About This Show

Seattle Public Theater’s (SPT) Youth Education Program presents Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s timeless satire, The Government Inspector. Performances run August 2-4 at the historic Bathhouse Theater on Green Lake.

When corrupt small town politicians learn of an undercover government inspector’s impending surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the community spiraling into a state of chaos. Originally produced in 1836, the biting satire and nimble wit of The Government Inspector is more relevant now than ever.
