About An Inspector Calls

The National Theatre of Great Britain’s award-winning thriller comes to Chicago for a limited engagement. "An Inspector Calls" has become the theatrical event of a generation, amassing Olivier, Tony, Drama Desk, and Critics Circle awards. Esteemed director Stephen Daldry’s genre-spanning career includes the hit Netflix series "The Crown," Oscar-nominated pictures, and Tony Award-winning productions, like "Billy Elliot the Musical." His vision of this suspenseful masterpiece finds a peaceful dinner party at the prosperous Birling home shattered when an inspector arrives to investigate a young woman’s death. Revelations shake the foundations of the family’s lives, prompting an examination of their consciences—and ours.
