PHS Amph-Rats to present ‘Government Inspector’

Posted April 3, 2017

Plymouth High School drama students will present the delightfully funny and satirical play “The Government Inspector” from April 6 to 9.

Each semester, the Independent Study Advanced Acting Class, also known as the Amph-Rats Acting Company, present a previously published play and an original work. “The Government Inspector” was written by Russian playwright Nikolai Gogol in 1836 and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher.

When the locals in a small Russian hamlet learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for a surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the whole village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. Witty, smart and wildly satirical, this timely and spirited adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's classic play exposes the corruption of a provincial town with biting hilarity.

“We double-cast some of the parts, because the class is so large and wonderfully talented,” said director Janet DeJean Newton.

Performances will begin at 7 p.m. April 6 through 8, with a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 9 in the Amphitheatre at PHS, 125 Highland Ave. General admission tickets are $3.
