Russia’s past and present mingle in UC Davis production of Gogol’s satire
Nikolai Gogol’s “The Government Inspector” — a savage satire from 1836, involving rampant greed and corruption in Czarist Russia — is one of those plays that you read about in history books, but seldom get to see on stage.
Americans still read the novels of Fyodor Dostoevsky and Leo Tolstoy (who came after Gogol), and the great plays Anton Chekhov wrote between 1896 and 1904 are still staged in these parts (witness the Art Theater of Davis production of “Uncle Vanya” this fall).
The UC Davis Theatre and Dance Department welcomes back alumna Patricia Miller to direct the biting satire “The Government Inspector.” It will be performed Nov. 12-22 at the Main Theatre in Wright Hall.
