An Inspector Calls returns to West End at the Playhouse
JB Priestley's An Inspector Calls, directed by Stephen Daldry, will return to the West End at the Playhouse Theatre, opening on 10 November 2016, following previews from 4 November, running until 4 February 2017.
Stephen Daldry's production of An Inspector Calls has won four Tony Awards, three Oliviers and has played to more than 4 million theatregoers worldwide since 1992. The play was first staged in the UK seventy years ago and this year will mark the 25th anniversary of its first appearance at the National Theatre.
The play was written at the end of the Second World War and is described as a "compelling and haunting thriller". It features designs by Ian MacNeil, lighting by Rick Fisher and is produced by PW Productions.
Synopsis: "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."
Director Stephen Daldry's West End credits include 'Skylight' at the Wyndham’s Theatre, 'The Audience' at the Apollo Theatre and the long-running 'Billy Elliot The Musical', which closed earlier this year after eleven years at the Victoria Palace.
