The Inspector-General

by Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol

In the sleepy Russian town of Arzamas, a rumor explodes: a high-ranking official has arrived incognito. Panic ensues as the corrupt officials, led by the self-important mayor, scramble to cover their tracks. Their fear is well-founded, for the "inspector-general" is not who he seems. Enter Khlestakov, a young, penniless gambler who finds himself mistaken for the inspector. Delighted by the lavish hospitality and endless bribes showered upon him, Khlestakov plays along, reveling in his newfound power and prestige.
