By J.B. Priestley

Directed by Jack Wake-Walker

Join us for CTC’s adaptation of J.B. Priestley’s classic thriller, An Inspector Calls. The respectable Birling family is at home hosting a dinner party in honour of their daughter’s recent engagement when an unforeseen knock at the door brings a sudden stop to the celebration. Enter Inspector Goole, who brings word of the unexpected death of a young woman. The questioning of each family member begins, dark secrets are uncovered and slowly the mystery surrounding the untimely death unravels.

Filled with twists, turns and gasps, An Inspector Calls will leave you guessing until the very last moment!

An Inspector Calls is one of the best-known works by English dramatist J.B. Priestley, first performed in 1945 and considered to be one of the classics of mid-20th century English theatre. The play is directed by Jack Wake-Walker, who previously directed his own play This Is What Happens at Copenhagen Fringe Festival in 2017. Jack commented on his inspiration for this adaptation:

“An Inspector Calls is traditionally set in a formal stuffy dining room in 1912. For this production, I was keen to do something very different, instead bringing it into a timeless setting that adopts a mixture of aesthetics: modern - in terms of the geometrical set and the specific accents used (the capitalist Birling family will be talking in the distinctive twang of the heartlands of the alt-right: the American Deep South); and ancient - in classical cult-like costumes designed to enhance the mystery of the piece.

It will - I hope - be unlike any An Inspector Calls you’ve seen before… but just as intriguing!”
