A young girl's suicide in an English industrial city brings a detective to the doorway of a British family, allegedly on a routine inquiry in connection with the death. But plot twists and surprises will keep you guessing during this haunting thriller about the respectable Birling family, whose secrets and sins are exposed when the mysterious Inspector Goole interrupts their lives. This popular drawing-room mystery by J.B. Priestley is a fascinating look into the world of a wealthy person as he or she is faced with guilt or blame for a moral wrong. A Broadway revival of An Inspector Calls won the 1994 Tony Award for Best Revival. Learn More
