After a sell-out London season and American tour, Stephen Daldry’s multi-award winning production of An Inspector Calls for the National Theatre returns to the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford at the end of this month.
Daldry’s visionary, radical, challenging version of JB Priestley’s classic thriller, hailed as the theatrical event of its generation, has been seen by more than 5 million people worldwide so far.
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.
Written at the end of the Second World War and set before the First, An Inspector Calls is a compelling and haunting thriller. More relevant now than ever, this is a must-see for a whole new generation of theatregoers.
Inspector Goole is played by Liam Brennan, whose theatre credits include Richard III and Twelfth Night at Shakespeare’s Globe, and Diary of a Madman at The Gate, for which he was awarded Best Actor at the Edinburgh Festival in 2016.
Christine Kavanagh appears as ‘Mrs Birling’, Jeff Harmer ‘Mr Birling’, Alisdair Buchan ‘Gerald Croft’, Chloe Orrock ‘Sheila Birling’, Ryan Saunders ‘Eric Birling’ and Diana Payne-Myers ‘Edna’. The cast is completed by Michael Ross, Portia Booroff, Elissa Churchill and Jonathan Davenport.
