Gaiety Theatre, Tuesday 5th May - Saturday 9th May

An Inspector Calls – UK and Ireland Tour of Stephen Daldry's seminal production of JB Priestley's classic thriller.

Since 1992, Daldry's production has won a total of 19 major awards including four Tony Awards and three Olivier Awards. It has played to more than 4 million theatregoers worldwide and is the most internationally-lauded production in the National Theatre's history. Written at the end of the Second World War and set before the First, An Inspector Calls is a compelling and haunting thriller. The story begins when the mysterious Inspector Goole calls unexpectedly on the prosperous Birling family home, shattering their peaceful family dinner party with his investigations into the death of a young woman. JB Priestley's brilliantly constructed masterpiece powerfully dramatises the dangers of casual capitalism's cruelty, complacency and hypocrisy.

Directed by the world-renowned theatre and film director Stephen Daldry, his many theatre credits include The Audience, Skylight and Billy Elliot The Musical. His film credits include The Hours, The Reader and Billy Elliot, all of which earned him Academy Award nominations for Best Director. Most recently he has directed several episodes of the Netflix smash hit series The Crown, for which he is also Producer.

An Inspector Calls boasts a stellar cast: Liam Brennan will play ‘Inspector Goole', Christine Kavanagh ‘Mrs Birling', Jeff Harmer ‘Mr Birling', Alasdair Buchan ‘Gerald Croft', Chloe Orrock ‘Sheila Birling', Ryan Saunders ‘Eric Birling' and Diana Payne-Myers ‘Edna'. The cast is completed by Michael Ross, Portia Booroff, Elissa Churchill and Jonathan Davenport and is designed by Ian MacNeil, with music by Academy Award winning composer Stephen Warbeck and Lighting by Rick Fisher.
