The Government Inspector is 'truly outstanding'

Monday 9th May 2016

Our latest production, The Government Inspector, arrived last week and has passed its inspection by critics with flying colours- or should that be stars?

“A Truly Outstanding Production”

Nottingham Post has had to “raid the thesaurus for new superlatives” because The Government Inspector is so good! “Wickedly funny”, “terrific”, “outstanding” and “cannot possibly be missed” being just a few.

“A superb, highly inventive and comical production” ★★★★★

East Midlands Theatre also writes that “top acting honours must go to Kiruna Stamell and Francesca Mills as mother and daughter Anna and Maria… All are incredibly funny in their own way”

“Energetic, crisp, wonderfully imaginative, and pace perfect”

Theatre World, critic Rob Worrall says “I sat behind a group of Year 11 students. They were spell-bound. Now that’s a better measure of this show’s worth than any words that I can weave!”

“Fresh, vibrant and relevant”

Nottingham Live says “the casting of this play was a stroke of genius, plus of course the direction by Roxana Silbert.”

“Achingly funny”

Exeunt Magazine also believes that “as an indictment of civic hypocrisy, the production could hardly be more timely.”

“Engages every audience member” 8/10

Impact Magazine writes “the integration of BSL gives a voice to the voiceless and paves the way for greater change in disability arts.”

But that’s not all! The play had also gained huge praise from national critics whilst on tour…
