The Government Inspector

The Mayor is in a cold sweat. News has reached him of an imminent visit from a Government Inspector.

Theatre Event

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. Could it be that they have met their match in the complicated business of deception?

Gogol’s satirical masterpiece is a hilarious riot of corruption, lies and greed that has lost none of its original bite. The Government Inspector is part of Ramps on the Moon: a ground-breaking touring project that signals a step change in disability arts provision in the UK.

Bringing together seven major theatre companies, including Sheffield Theatres, it will change the way theatre made by and for D/deaf and disabled people is seen. These companies are committed to putting D/deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of their work, to accelerate positive change, and stimulate awareness of disability issues within arts and culture.

A bit more information...


Following on from the highly successful production of The Threepenny Opera in Spring 2014, and in recognition of the under representation and employment of disabled people throughout the industry, particularly in “mainstream” theatre, a consortium of theatres successfully applied for a Strategic Touring Fund to undertake a six year programme of work.

Integrating disabled and non- disabled performers and practitioners. This programme aims to achieve a step change in the employment and artistic opportunities for disabled performers and creative teams , and a cultural change in the participating organisations to enable accessibility to become a central part of their thinking and aesthetics.
