Written by -- JB Priestley

The Playhouse Theatre will be putting on a production of J. B. Priestley's classic thriller "An Inspector Calls".

The story begins with Inspector Goole arriving unannounced at the Birling family home, smack bang in the middle of a dinner party, and insisting on investigating their role in the death of a young woman.

As the play progresses, it becomes clear that each of the guests have in some way exploited the girl, and his startling revelations force them to examine their consciences.

It's been described as "heart-thumpingly thrilling", with the "power to stir the heart as much as the mind".
