BRIBES, mis-directed contracts, mis-allocation of public money, fiddled expenses. Panic. Sound familiar?
If you are intrigued to find out more, then head to Dundee Rep Theatre for The Government Inspector, performed by the Communicado Theatre Company.
A penniless nobody from the big city arrives in a small town where he is mistaken for the all-powerful government inspector by its corrupt and self-serving officials. The Government Inspector’s hilarious and vicious expose of the corruption of (petty) power pulls off that rare trick of providing belly laughs and food for thought. It runs from Wednesday, April 17 to Friday, April 19.
Drama continues at The Rep on Tuesday, April 23 with Fleeto and Wee Andy.
When his friend is stabbed, a young lad falls in with a gang. The terrible revenge he takes brings disaster on himself and the family of his victim. Inspired by The Iliad and drawing on Glasgow’s ‘knife culture,’ Fleeto is a hard-hitting contemporary Scottish re-invention of the Greek tragic form. Another day, another young lad attacked by a knife gang and another life shattered. Wee Andy depicts the fallout for those left picking up the pieces.
