J B Priestley’s Classic Thriller

An Inspector Calls

Stephen Daldry’s multi award-winning National Theatre production of JB Priestley’s classic thriller returns after a record-breaking, sell-out tour in 2022.

Winner of 19 major awards and hailed as the theatrical event of its generation, An Inspector Calls has thrilled more than 5 million theatregoers 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.

Praise for West End Production

“Every time Stephen Daldry’s great production of this JB Priestley play returns, its power and pertinence feel all the more striking.” 
★★★★ The Independent, Nov 2016

“I never tire of watching it. That’s partly because it looks astounding, but it’s also because it builds on the crusading provocation of Priestley’s 1944 original – an Edwardian thriller with a socialist purpose, tinged with a supernatural spin. An Inspector Calls always speaks to the changing political moment.”
★★★★ Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph Nov 10 2016

“Stephen Daldry’s spectacularly successful remount of JB Priestley has returned to the West End… it remains a remarkable evening.”
★★★★  The Times, Nov 2016

 “An Inspector Calls is a monumental, timeless image, reminding us that ‘community and all that nonsense’ should never be disregarded.”
★★★★  Evening Standard

“Stephen Daldry’s epochal Priestley production returns – and what a spectacle: this is bold, thinking, populist theatre, designed to entertain but also to boot you up the bum and shake the complacencies out of you.”
★★★★  Time Out

“It is great to see a new generation encountering this sobering and sadly relevant piece of theatre.”
