Stephen Daldry’s multi award-winning production of JB Priestley’s classic thriller returns to the West End for a strictly limited season.

Hailed as the theatrical event of its generation, winning more awards than any other production in history, this magnificent NATIONAL THEATRE presentation has thrilled more than 4 million people worldwide.

Now Daldry (Oscar-nominated Director of The Reader, The Hours and Billy Elliot) returns to re-direct his masterpiece at London’s Playhouse Theatre.

An Inspector Calls runs from 4 November 2016 until 25 March 2017 at the Playhouse Theatre.


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.

As relevant now as it was when Priestley wrote the play, this is a must-see for a whole new generation of theatregoers.
