When the locals in a small Russian hamlet learn that an undercover government inspector is in the area to investigate possible corruption, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the whole village spiraling out of control in a frenetic burst of panic and greed.

The Government Inspector, Nikolai Gogol’s classic satire of bureaucracy and politics has been updated by playwright Jeffrey Hatcher (Holmes and Watson) into a silly romp filled with slapstick, sex, stupidity, bad food, and lots of vodka. Some may remember it as the basis for the classic film The Inspector General, with Danny Kaye.

Opening Oct. 7 to 23, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults; students, seniors and members are $19; Senior members at $16. Hatbox Theatre is located at the Steeplegate Mall, 270 Loudon Road, Concord.
