Exactly 70 years after it was first staged in the UK, Stephen Daldry's multi-award winning production of An Inspector Calls returns to the West End, staged Playhouse Theatre from November. Written by J.B. Priestley, An Inspector Calls is a darkly sinister play which is widely considered to be a classic in mid-century-20th century contemporary theatre. It follows Inspector Goole as he interrupts a dinner party of the prosperous Birling family to investigate the death of a young woman.

About Playhouse Theatre

A short step away from the main strip of West End theatres, the Playhouse's stylish curved facade is rather lost among the towering architecture of Charing Cross and Embankment. If the exterior is a little too restrained however, the same cannot be said for the auditorium, which is a sumptuous tribute to theatrical excess. More about Playhouse Theatre
