The Government Inspector, by Nikolai Gogol, that has also been translated into English under the titles The Inspector General, and The Inspector, premiered at the Alexandrinsky Theatre, in Saint Petersburg, in 1836.
Universal themes of human corruption and the folly of self-deception are explored through this drama of Russian life. The townspeople attempt to deceive the government inspector as to the true corruption within the local government, but find that they have only deceived and cheated themselves in the process.
The governor's famous line, as he turns to address the audience directly,"What are you laughing at? You are laughing at yourselves," illustrates this theme, which is summed up in the play's epigraph, "If your face is crooked, don't blame the mirror."
Gogol made use of the plot motif of mistaken identity “to reveal a fundamental state of chaos in human life.” As for us (the studio) – we just followed the author’s text and his remarks for the actors.
