Elyse Maloway is about to debut on the stage at Capilano University, where the Surrey Little Theatre alumna is starting her third and final year in the Musical Theatre program.

Maloway has a role in the university’s first production of the season, The Government Inspector.

The Langley Secondary School graduate is playing the part of the brooding daughter, Marya, in the play, an adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher of the original shttp://webpapersadmin.bcnewsgroup.com/portals/uploads/cloverdale/.DIR288/wMalloway.jpgatire by dramatist Nikolai Gogol.

Maloway has appeared in several SLT productions onstage. She also directed a one-act play she wrote herself.

The Government Inspector is Exit 22 Productions’ 2014-15 season opener. It’s directed by Nicholas Harrison, and runs Oct. 15 to 18 ( 8 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee Oct. 18).

Originally published in 1836, the play was revised for an 1842 edition.

The story is set in a small town in provincial Russia, where residents receive warning that a government inspector is en route, and in disguise, intending to investigate.

Panic, greed, and bribery ensue as locals try to identify – and impress – the mysterious newcomer, a guest at a hotel.

All performances take place at the BlueShore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts at Capilano University 2055 Purcell Way, North Vancouver.
