Stephen Daldry’s acclaimed National Theatre production of JB Priestley’s An Inspector Calls will embark on a UK tour across 2024 and 2025, following a sold-out season in 2022.

The play delves into the lives of the prosperous Birling family when Inspector Goole disrupts their dinner party with inquiries about the death of a young woman. Since its inception in 1992, Daldry’s production has garnered 19 major awards, including four Tony Awards and three Olivier Awards, and has been seen by over 5 million theatregoers worldwide.

Opening at Alexandra Palace for a three-week run on 30 August, the tour will then visit various cities including Stoke, Darlington, Bristol, Belfast, Leicester, Eastbourne, Liverpool, Aylesbury, Salford, Norwich, Southampton, Shrewsbury, Hull, Cardiff, Blackpool, Wolverhampton, Truro, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Sunderland, Sheffield, Bradford, Birmingham, Llandudno, Milton Keynes and Wimbledon. Casting is to be revealed.

Daldry said today: “We’re thrilled to be presenting another tour of An Inspector Calls and excited to be opening at the Alexandra Palace. When we first made this production at the National Theatre in 1992 we could never have dreamt that it would still be going 32 years later and be just as relevant today as it was when it was first written.”
