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

I enjoyed the performance for the most part. The acting was excellent for the most part; however, there were a couple of cast members who were not that strong IMHO, and it was somewhat distracting. For example, one cast member seemed to be trying to speak with an American accent but the accent of her native variety of English kept coming through. The other cast member was overacting and constantly seemed to be out of breath. A bit on the annoying side. I love the productions I have seen at the Greenhouse Theater Center, but this wasn't one of the finest, just OK.
<p>By Sam Shepard
Directed by Steve Scott
Featuring Ensemble Members Allison Batty, Maury Cooper and Linda Reiter</p> <p>The story is as puzzling as it is deeply insightful. At ground level, the play resembles the realism and grotesquerie of many mid-century American playwrights. But underneath, its roots in ritual and its particular approach to monumental, timeless themes of human suffering — incest, murder, and rebirth — suggest something entirely different. With each new generation comes the hope of awakening from the disintegrating American Dream.</p>
About the Ticket Supplier: Shattered Globe Theatre
Dedicated to the philosophy of ensemble, it is the mission of Shattered Globe Theatre to dissect, challenge, and revel in the American experiment; inspire social discourse by raising questions rather than espousing philosophy; stimulate artistic growth for and broaden the perspectives of both artist and audience; and push the boundaries of excellence in ensemble theatre. To this end, Shattered Globe Theatre brings its audiences fresh renditions of classic works and premiereproductions that celebrate new voices and innovative viewpoints.
Founded in 1991, SHATTERED GLOBE THEATRE was born when a small group of Chicago theatre artists joined forces to stage a single production--Adam Langer's Backstage Pass. Inspired by the positive reception of the show and the powerful dynamic experienced in their collaboration, the actors formed Shattered Globe and took up residence in a tiny storefront at 2856 N. Halsted Street. Since that time, Shattered Globe has produced nearly 50 plays, garnering 35 Joseph Jefferson wins and the acclaim of critics and audiences alike for such productions as Judgment at Nuremberg, Coyote on a Fence, High Life, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Manchurian Candidate and, most recently, The House of Blue Leaves and Dealer's Choice. SGT presents an eclectic mix of shows that speak to our times and inspire social discourse, including world premieres by some of Chicago's most promising playwrights, Chicago premieres of works by national and international writers, and new takes on some of America's best-loved classics. The company remained in its original storefront until 1999 and is now a resident company of The Greenhouse Theater Center.
