Next Stage Performance 2012
Next Stage Presents The Government Inspector!
On June 23, 2012 students of Place des Arts Next Stage Performance class presented a lively adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's famous satyrical comedy The Inspector General called The Government Inspector. The play is a comedy of errors, satirizing human greed, stupidity and the extensive political corruption. Teacher Jame's O'Shea wrote the adaptation and set the scene not in Russia, but in a small northern BC Town.
