ABOUT THE PLAY – An Inspector Calls:

As the mysterious Inspector Goole interrogates each member of this affluent family he uncovers their connections to this tragic young woman’s death.

Stripping away layer upon layer of deceit he exposes the lies that infect this seemingly respectable family and reveals the deeply entrenched hypocrisy at the heart of Edwardian society.

An Inspector Calls is J.B. Priestley’s most famous work. It has been produced on stage, radio, television and in film numerous times since it was first performed in the UK in 1946.

Directed by David Thacker.
