Review this show


Famously revived by Daldry at the National Theatre in 1992, An Inspector Calls has since won 19 major awards across the globe. An Inspector Calls is set to begin previews at London’s Playhouse Theatre on November 4th 2016.

Written by J. B. Priestley, An Inspector Calls is a darkly sinister play which is widely considered to be a classic in mid-20th century contemporary theatre. Set in Brumley, a fictional industrial city in the midlands, a wealthy upper-middle class family’s dinner party is interrupted when they receive an unexpected visit from the mysterious Inspector Goole. Soon, the entire family are questioned about potential involvement in the death of Eva Smith, a young and innocent working-class lady. Following lengthy interrogation, the audience are forced to question their own conscience as the investigation reaches a terrifying climax.

Seen by over 4 million people worldwide, An Inspector Calls has earned multiple awards, most notably the Olivier Award for Best Revival, as well as Critic’s Circle Awards for Best Director and Best Design. An Inspector Calls is known across the globe, and is usually studied at GCSE level due to the strong social and political commentaries within Priestley’s text.

Daldry said of the production’s return to London: “Each time we have mounted this production it seems more relevant than the last, with the refugee crisis, the European referendum debate and American elections, you can’t fail to see the genius of Priestley’s writing.”
