A door-slamming farce set here in a fantasy world of 1970s-meets-Imperial-Russia-meets-Bonnaroo-Gypsy-Camp, Government Inspector explores the exploits & corruption of a small-town mayor. The skeletal set references grand Slavic architectural and provincial gingerbread detail work, but is finished to look as though the paint has peeled and the estate left in neglect. Contrasted with full gold leafed furniture, the decayed finish was meant to highlight the artifice of a corrupt government.
