Open/Close The Government Inspector

  • by Nikolai Gogol
  • Theatre: McComas Mainstage

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.

Open/Close Proof

  • David Auburn

Catherine, a young woman who has spent year caring for her brilliant but mentally ill father. On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday she must deal not only with his death but with the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire, and with the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that Robert has left behind.

As Catherine confronts Hal's affections and Claire's plans for her life, she struggles to solve the most perplexing problem of all: How much of her father's madness--or genius--will she inherit?

Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Proof is a complex and humanly funny drama about the link between genius and mental illness.
