An Inspector Calls
by J.B. Priestly
Directed by: Robert May
Performance dates: January 10th-26th. Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm
In an English industrial city, a young girl commits suicide and an inspector calls on an eminently respectable British family, subject to a routine inquiry in connection with the death. The family, closely knit and friendly on the surface, is shown up as selfish, self-centered or cowardly, and during the course of the inspector’s questioning, all members of the group are implicated lightly or deeply in the girl’s undoing. Produced in London and New York. According to Variety, the play is a psychologically adept work and “an engaging play… Its mood is sustained throughout, so that it is practically always interesting.” Though ostensibly a remarkably clear and effective dramatic play, there underlies the whole thing an air of mystic unreality. AN INSPECTOR CALLS is an effective presentation of the strange twists that take place in human beings when their consciences are affected.
