An Inspector Calls

A drama by J.B. Priestley
March 1964
The Little Theatre, Old Royal Marines Camp, Butts Close, Faringdon

Set in 1912, the play follows the unexpected arrival of Inspector Goole at the home of the wealthy Birling family, interrupting Arthur Birling, his wife Sybil, and their son and daughter (Eric and Sheila) who are celebrating the announcement of Sheila’s engagement to Gerald Croft, heir to one of the most prosperous family businesses in England. Arriving on the business of investigating the death of a young woman, the inspector soon unearths the hidden connections that all members of the family have with the deceased lady, forcing us to reassess both the family, and even ourselves, in the light of these new revelations.
