J B Priestley's An Inspector Calls


  • King's Theatre 2 Leven Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH3 United Kingdom (map)

The National Theatre's Landmark Production. Directed by Stephen Daldry.

Stephen Daldry’s record breaking and multi-award winning production for the National Theatre of An Inspector Calls returns after a sell-out London season and American tour.

Daldry’s visionary, radical, challenging version of JB Priestley’s classic thriller, hailed as the theatrical event of its generation, has been seen by more than 4 million people worldwide.

When Inspector Goole arrives unexpectedly at the prosperous Birling family home, their peaceful dinner party is shattered by his investigations into the death of a young woman. His startling revelations shake the very foundations of their lives and challenge us all to examine our consciences. More relevant now than ever, this is a must-see for a whole new generation of theatregoers.
