Stephen Daldry’s (The Reader, The Hours, Billy Elliot) landmark staging of J.B. Priestly’s An Inspector Calls returns to the West End in November.

An iconic thriller and an enduringly powerful play about conscience, consequences and class, An Inspector Calls takes place over a single evening. The affluent Birling family are enjoying a quiet dinner party when Inspector Goole comes calling. Appearing out of the blue, Goole has arrived to investigate the suicide of a young, working-class woman. As the Inspector reveals more and more about the miserable situation of the young woman, it seems that each member of the family is hiding a guilty secret.

Clive Francis (The Crown, Netflix), Barbara Marten (Casualty) and Liam Brennan (Diary of a Madman – winner of a Stage Edinburgh Award) will lead the dynamic cast in the much-anticipated return of the production.

Produced by the National Theatre, Oscar nominee Daldry’s production of An Inspector Calls has won more awards than any other production in theatre history and has been seen by over four million people across the globe. Daldry now returns as director of this riveting play for its run at London’s Playhouse Theatre. Whether you are seeing it for the first time or for the second, third or fourth, the return of this bold, visually astounding and passionate production is not to be missed.

A well-acted, good play spoilt by the designer and director. The doll's house set and its surroundings were a distraction that gave a feeling of detachment from the main performances. It also hindered the actors who, in the later scenes, had to keep treading on broken glass and crockery - again a distraction. The added sound effects drowned out some of the dialogue and the additional actors and children added nothing.
