An Inspector Calls on MK Theatre

Date Posted:17/02/2016

An Inspector CallsIt’s won more awards than any other play in history and been hailed as the theatrical event of our generation. Now, Stephen Daldry’s National Theatre and West End production of J.B. Priestley’s classic thriller, An Inspector Calls, returns to Milton Keynes Theatre from Mon 22 – Sat 27 February.

A peaceful family dinner party at the home of the successful and comfortably smug Mr and Mrs. Birling is shattered by the arrival of Inspector Goole, a local police inspector. His investigations into the death of a young woman shake the very foundations of the lives of each of them and, in doing so, challenge us all to examine our consciences.

Just over 70 years since it first premiered, Daldry’s visionary production unites the 1912 setting of Priestley’s play with the post-world war two period in which it was written.

Ian MacNeil’s astonishing set design, an award-winning star act in its own right, evokes a bombed wasteland over which the Birling family’s Edwardian home (and indeed the life of those within) teeters precariously, in imminent danger of crumbling into ruins.

The cast includes: Liam Brennan (Inspector Goole), Caroline Wilde (Mrs. Birling), Tim Woodward (Mr. Birling), Matthew Douglas (Gerald Croft) Katherine Jack (Sheila Birling) Hamish Riddle (Eric Birling) and Diana Payne Myers (Edna).

An Inspector Calls has electrified audiences around the world with its epic and wildly imaginative staging, raw emotion, evocative score, lashing rain and chilling suspense.

Brrrr!
