Michaelmas Week 5
"A nice little promising life there, I thought and a nasty mess somebody's made of it." One evening the Birling family sits down to dinner to celebrate the engagement of their daughter. Prosperous and content, they could not be more satisfied with life. Unexpectedly the doorbell rings, an Inspector has come to inquire about a young woman who has committed suicide. A young, pretty woman by the name of Eva Smith but they none of them know her, of course.
Slowly but inexorably, the Inspector connects them to the young woman, shattering their illusions about themselves and their lives.
"An Inspector Calls" is a challenging play by a well-known playwright that is searching and poignant but underpinned with understanding and humour. It offers the actor well-drawn, complex characters and brilliantly written dialogue in a suspenseful, dramatic situation.
