About the show

‘Written at the end of the Second World War and set before the First, An Inspector Calls is a compelling and haunting thriller.

‘The story begins when the mysterious Inspector Goole calls unexpectedly on the prosperous Birling family home, shattering their peaceful family dinner party with his investigations.

‘JB Priestley’s brilliantly constructed masterpiece powerfully dramatises the dangers of casual capitalism’s cruelty, complacency and hypocrisy.’
