Scarborough Players reluctantly cancelled the remaining performances of Pride and Prejudice from March 14-21, 2020. We had hoped that if the curve of this pandemic flattened, that we might be able to remount Pride and Prejudice later in the season but that does not seem likely now at all. We are not sure when we will have access to the theatre as The City of Toronto has now cancelled permits until June 30, 2020.
As a result of the City’s decision, Scarborough Players has also made the difficult decision to cancel our May/June production of The Government Inspector. Also the director, cast and team have not been able to rehearse since mid-March and there was no way for them to continue to do so safely. Our plan is to schedule it in another season down the line.
All Patrons who currently have tickets for this production will be contacted by the Box Office. Our Box Office is volunteer run and it may take a little while to reach out to everyone. We thank you in advance for your patience.
“…a comedy of galumphing, harrumphing hilarity. One-part farce, one-part slapstick….” – Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN)
What happens when a rumour spreads that a Government Inspector is arriving undercover in a small Russian town? No one knows who it is so the citizens spiral into a panic of corruption and greed to impress a visitor newly arrived. Is he the Inspector or is he not? This spirited and
uproarious adaptation of Gogol’s original is witty and satirical with a contemporary feel.
Recommended for age 10 and up.
