Stephen Daldry's version of JB Priestley's An Inspector Calls will tour the UK and US from September.

The production, which was recently seen in the West End, first ran in 1992 at the National Theatre (where it won three Olivier Awards) and has since been seen by over 4 million people. Priestley's classic thriller explores the hidden crimes of a wealthy family at a dinner party.

Daldry's other directorial credits include The Crown, Skylight and Billy Elliot, and he directed The Jungle, which is currently running in the West End, as well as Matthew Lopez's The Inheritance, which recently announced its West End transfer.

Opening at York Theatre Royal on 14 September, the show will then tour to Cambridge, Wimbledon and Cheltenham, before hopping over the Atlantic to perform in Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston. It has design by Ian MacNeil, with music by Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Warbeck and lighting by Rick Fisher. Casting for the tour is to be announced.
