Find tix for Inspector

Stephen Daldry’s production of J.B. Priestley’s play is almost sold out, but it is definitely worth checking for return tickets at the Grand Théâtre box office.

Find tix for Inspector

Bringing J.B. Priestley’s play, “An Inspector Calls”, set in 1912, bang up to date by staging it as a play being watched by an audience in 1945 (the year it was written) was a stroke of genius that made Stephen Daldry’s name as a director in 1999. Priestley’s entertaining thriller is also a fine piece of social commentary about class in England, but now in Daldry’s hands it can also be read as a critique of the greed of financial institutions.

The plot revolves around the wealthy Birling family who are questioned by a police inspector about the suicide of a young working-class woman. Daldry heightens the tension by introducing a set that mirrors German expressionism cinema and a score that recalls Hitchcock.

This production has received widespread acclaim, with Brian Logan in The Guardian calling it “brilliantly accusatory, bracing and strange.”
