An Inspector Calls
About An Inspector Calls
A festive evening at the home of the Birlings, a well-heeled British family, is suddenly punctured by a mysterious visitor: a grim inspector investigating the death of a young woman. As questions multiply and guilt mounts, the Birlings’ entanglement in the affair shatters the foundations of their comfortable lives. Existing simultaneously in 1912, post-war society and modern day, Daldry’s spectacular production is both a plea for a more just society and a warning of what’s to come if we fail to attain it.
Winner of 19 major accolades, including multiple Tony, Olivier and Drama Desk Awards, Stephen Daldry’s production of J.B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls continues to astound audiences more than 25 years later with its eerie prescience.
