The Mayor is in a cold sweat. News has reached him of an imminent visit from a Government Inspector. His fear is well-founded as he has been somewhat lacking in his official duties. Surely the only possible solution is bribery; it seems to have resolved many a sticky situation for the Mayor and his team in the past! But a simple case of mistaken identity leads matters to spiral hysterically out of control.
This is a fast, funny, bittersweet play that remains painfully relevant today. You won’t be able to help but laugh at the hilarious riot of lies, greed and consequences in this sidesplittingly brilliant masterclass in comedy!
All performances are:
'Magnificently fresh and innovative'
'Hilarious and inventive adaptation that explodes the way disability is treated in the theatre'
'Don’t miss it'
The Reviews Hub
Whats On Stage
'A brilliant production'
Express & Star/Native Monster
'A multilingual masterpiece'
Love Midlands Theatre
'Sparkling…smart and snappy'
