The Inspector is LOOK OUT!’s Theatre Company’s version of “The Inspector General”, a classic comedy about human greed and vanity written by Nikolai Gogol and first performed in 1836.

Students in 3rd and 4th of Secondary will enjoy this hilarious play about mistaken identity and council corruption in a small town in Russia. LOOK OUT! brings you a fantastic cast of clichéd characters and will make your students laugh out loud.

A corrupt mayor and his officials are alarmed to hear rumours of the impending arrival of a government inspector who is believed to be travelling incognito. Thrown into a panic, the mayor and his officials desperately struggle to cover up their many wrong-doings. But who is the government inspector and where is he hiding?

When they hear that a well-dressed young man has been living at the local hotel for two weeks, they jump to the obvious conclusion.  The young man quickly sizes up the situation and allows the mayor and his cronies to shower him with hospitality and cash.  As he spins ever-more fantastic stories of his own fame and fortune, the mayor and his officials begin to imagine even greater futures for themselves.

Of course the gentleman is not the inspector, but an poor traveller who has nothing but his clothes to his name.  After a brief stop to seduce the mayor’s wife and daughter, the mistaken inspector makes plans to take the money and run.

Hello. I’m the Queen.

The King and I with the maid have been going to schools in and around Barcelona. It’s such fun!

On Thursday we went to a village in the north called Pallafolls, and then we travelled four days to the south to arrive on Tuesday in Santa Coloma de Gramanet. Our next journey was north again but only took us one day to arrive in Argentona on Wednesday.

All the children paid the tax of one gold coin and the Sound Collector came to visit us. He has got all these wonderful sounds in his bag. It was such fun listening to them.

It’s my tea time now, time to eat some bread and honey, yummy! I’ll come back later and tell you what happens in our story.  Bye for now.
