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

This is a brilliant, impossible play. Nearly every line has two or three levels of meaning, if not multiple ironies, and the writing is mordantly, almost savagely funny while doing full justice to the atrocity of the subject. Unfortunately, such wit and profundity would require actors with equal mental acuity, range, depth, and technique, and modern American actors possess none of this. The performances here were one or two dimensional--well meaning, and the troupe should get commendation for attempting such a difficult play--and entirely inadequate to the task. The staging was fairly inventive and successful, as was the incidental music. Line readings of sufficient brilliance and depth for this poetry would require an entire cast full of the likes of Judi Dench, sad to say. Great play, though.
