Casting for An Inspector Calls, which will play at the Playhouse Theatre from the 4th November until the 4th February, has been confirmed.
Clive Francis (The Crown, Netflix), Barbara Marten (Casualty) and Liam Brennan (Diary of a Madman – winner of a Stage Edinburgh Award) will all star in this revival of JB Priestley’s An Inspector Calls, directed by Stephen Daldry.
They will also be joined on stage by Matthew Douglas, Carmela Corbett, Hamish Riddle and Diana Payne-Myers.
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.
Talking about joining the production Clive Francis said: “An Inspector Calls is one of the great classic plays of the 20th century. It premiered in London’s west end the year I was born and has now been seen by a whole new generation of theatre goers thanks to Stephen Daldry’s brilliant and masterly production.”
This revival marks the 70th anniversary since the play was first staged and 25 years since this National Theatre production first made its appearance.
Since 1992, Daldry’s production has won 19 major awards including four Tony Awards and Three Olivier Awards, becoming the most internationally-lauded production in the National Theatre’s history.
JB Priestley’s classic play was written at the end of World War II and set just before World War I and this production proves its enduring relevance to audiences.
The production features Ian MacNeil’s designs, music by Oscar winning composer Stephen Warbeck and lighting by Rick Fisher.
An Inspector Calls will play at the Playhouse Theatre from the 4th November until the 4th February. To book tickets visit ATG Tickets.
