‘Where there’s muck there’s brass’ … and this hysterically funny tale of misdeeds, misadventure and mistaken identity has plenty of both.

In a small Pennine town a flashy young stranger is mistaken for the Government Inspector.  The town’s unscrupulous Councillors, fearing discovery of their corrupt goings-on, do all they can to ingratiate themselves. Bribes, backhanders and brown envelopes abound and the stranger, who has an eye for a quick buck, takes full advantage with hilarious results.
