An Inspector Calls extends its successful run at the Playhouse Theatre until 25 March!

From the Oscar nominated Director Stephen Daldry of The ReaderThe Hours and Billy Elliot comes the multi award-winning West End and Broadway production of J. B. Priestley's classic thriller An Inspector Calls.

Clive Francis (The Crown, Netflix), Barbara Marten (Casualty) and Liam Brennan (Diary of a Madman – winner of a Stage Edinburgh Award) will lead a dynamic cast in the much-anticipated return of Stephen Daldry’s multi award-winning production.

The story begins 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. More relevant now than ever, this is a must-see for a whole new generation of theatregoers.

Stephen Daldry's production of J. B. Priestey's An Inspector Calls is without doubt one of the most outstanding theatrical events of our generation. Winner of 19 major awards, it opened at the National Theatre in 1992, transferring to the West End for two years before going on an extensive international tour including Australia and New York (Broadway). The last West End production ran for 8 years and the show has enjoyed a number of major UK tours. Hailed as the theatrical event of its generation, winning more awards than any other production in history, An Inspector Calls has thrilled more than 4 million people worldwide.

Martine Hug Simon28th February

Wonderful,smashing, great characters,marvellous artists! At first during 10 minutes we thought we were not going to understand one word but after that a real pleasure, two hours of pure diction ! We loved it and did not regret not to go to a musical show instead!!!!! Strongly recommend it!!!! Martine from Geneva Switzerland

D Hoyer19th February

Good plot and great acting. Not what I expected, but very entertaining!

Neil Langridge18th February

A well staged and acted production.

Sophie Parker18th February

A good rendition of the play, with some solid acting performance. An imaginative and impressive set too, with the characters "inside the house" at the start and then emerging into the foreground for the majority of the play. One small point is that, on occasion, it was quite hard to hear the characters' voices when they were inside the house. We liked the Playhouse Theatre, but it could do with a little more seating area available for those arriving early and having a drink or something to eat.

Great seats, Great Play recommended Birthday treat

Rachel Major27th January

We thought it touched on a lot of moral issues. The actors enthralled the audience as was proven with the ack of rustling of sweet papers. These sweets should be banned in theatres.

Michele19th January

The production was most disappointing. Loud music at the start plus various explosions causing the house to disintegrate were extreaneous effects which this genre of play really didn't need. The acting was also rather poor and "hammy", reminiscent of melodrama. I felt that the main socialist point of the play was lost in all this over-dramatisation. The idea of placing the house adjacent to the street meant that we couldn't really engage with the characters as much as if the whole play had been set in the comfortable drawing room. The theatre was extremely cold and even keeping our winter coats on did little to help. Overall this was a serious let down - a great shame.
