About the Show Less...

He’s UN all over. On the surface completely ineffective. But watch out! One slip and he’ll tear you apart. Read More >

Spotted at the Marriott by government aides in search of a decent cappuccino, a British businessman nonentity is mistaken for the dreaded UN inspector. While he exploits the situation for all it’s worth, presidential panic ensues as ex-Soviet Ministers make farcical attempts to cover up the corruption that lies at the State’s core. A riotous satire based on Gogol’s masterpiece, The Government Inspector, David Farr’s new play explores human greed and immorality in the highest places.
