News   The U.N. Inspector Opens at London's National June 16
David Farr updates Gogol’s The Government Inspector with his political farce, The U.N. Inspector. The show opens at the National Theatre June 16.

In Farr’s working, a British businessman is spotted at a Marriott Hotel by government aides who mistake him for a U.N. Inspector, whose visit they are dreading. He happily exploits the situation, while ex-Soviet Ministers frantically try to cover up their corruption. Michael Sheen, last seen on the London stage as an award-winning Caligula at the Donmar, heads the cast. Alongside him are Mark Arends, Peter Aubrey, Geoffrey Beevers, Elizabeth Bell, Kate Best, Cornelius Booth, Sam Cox, Kenneth Cranham, Michelle Dockery, Nick Fletcher, Michael Gould, Daisy Haggard, Geraldine James, Mark Leadbetter, Penelope McGhie, Jonathan McGuinness, David Ryall, Justin Salinger, Nicolas Tennant, Nicholas Tizzard and Tony Turner.

Designs are by Ti Green, with lighting designs by Mark Henderson. Music is by Keith Clouston and sound design by John Leonard. The show is playing the Olivier Theatre and is part of the Travelex £10 season (some seats can be reserved for £10 for every performance).
