Following a hugely successful UK tour in 2009 Stephen Daldry’s multi award-winning production of JB Priestley’s classic drama returned to the West End for a strictly limited season of 8 weeks at the Novello Theatre before transferring to The Wyndhams Theatre for a further 8 weeks.
Following its initial success at the National Theatre, Stephen Daldry’s production of An Inspector Calls transferred to the West End for two years, prior to a world tour. In 1993 the production opened on Broadway, winning an unprecedented string of awards including four Tony Awards. Hailed as the theatrical event of its generation and winning a total of 19 major awards since it first opened, this landmark production has thrilled more than 4 million people worldwide.
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. Their peaceful family dinner party is shattered by his investigations into the death of a young woman.
