According to actress Doon MacKichan (Day Today, Smack the Pony), Julian Barratt has been cast in the play ‘Government Inspector’, by Nikolai Gogol.

MacKichan revealed this information on twitter; Barratt is to play the mayor, while Doon plays his wife.  The play will be performed at The Young Vic thetare in London, although as yet no date has been set and no tickets are for sale.  Barratt was recently seen in a straight acting role in Chekhov’s The Bear, which was shown on SkyArts in November 2010, but this will be the first time fans will be able to see him on a theatrical stage in a non-comedy role.

Rumour has it that the production may be directed by controversial award winning director, Richard Jones, so it promises to be quite a spectacle!

Obviously we’ll let  you know as soon as we can find out any more.

Editors’ note: Thanks to theclappers4 for spotting this.

    ‘The Government Inspector’ is a comedy. At least in russian.
