The Guardian on The White Factory

Alexander “Sandy” Marshall, Bird & Carrot, David Luff and Wild Yak present
A comedy about hypocrites, hysterics and hustlers.

Nikolai Gogol’s masterful comedy about how corrupt power destroys itself, exposing the tragi-comic consequences of collective delusion and the swindlers who would exploit it

A comedy about hypocrites, hysterics and hustlers.

Starring Kiell Smith-Bynoe (BBC’s Ghosts, Taskmaster), Dan Skinner (Shooting Stars’ Angelous Epithemiou), Martha Howe-Douglas (Horrible Histories, BBC’s Ghosts) and Dan Starkey (Doctor Who), Nikolai Gogol’s satirical masterpiece is reimagined at the award-winning Marylebone Theatre this Spring.

An over-privileged, vainglorious liar is mistaken for a high-ranking government inspector by the corrupt local officials of an English parochial town. Desperate to cover up their crimes and escape censure, the town’s Governor and his cronies pull out all the stops to try and bribe this dishonest buffoon with money, wine and women. ‍

A hilarious new adaptation of this classic comedy about how corrupt power destroys itself, exposing the tragi-comic consequences of collective delusion and the swindlers who would exploit it.
