Starring Clive Francis, Barbara Marten and Liam Brennan, this revival marks the 70th anniversary of the first UK staging of the play and the 25th anniversary of this production appearing at the National Theatre for the first time.

Producer Iain Gillie of PW Productions said:  “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to give this remarkable production an extended life in the West End. This incredibly talented acting company, the current relevance of the play and genius of Stephen Daldry’s production are all reflected in the audiences desire to come and see it and their appreciation after they have.”

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.

Daldry’s production has won a number of awards including four Tony Awards and three Olivier Awards.

An Inspector Calls was written by Priestley at the end of the Second World War and is set just before the beginning of the First World War and is a compelling thriller that forces us all to examine our consciences.

The production also features Ian MacNeil’s  designs, music by Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love) and lighting by Rick Fisher.
