The classic thriller, written at the end of the Second World War, is set before the First and follows Inspector Goole as he calls upon the Birling family home to investigate the death of a young woman.

The company is completed by Philip Stewart, Beth Tuckey, Maceo Cortezz and Rue Blenkinsop.

Produced by PW Productions, the piece features designs by Ian MacNeil, music by Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck and lighting by Rick Fisher.
