Stephen Daldry’s multi award-winning National Theatre production of JB Priestley’s classic thriller returns.
Hailed as the theatrical event of its generation, winning more awards than any other production in history, An Inspector Calls has thrilled more than 5 million people worldwide.  

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. More relevant now than ever, this is a must-see for a whole new generation of theatregoers.

An Inspector Calls Smoking statement
There are a few instances of smoking during this production of An Inspector Calls. The first, comes from the text where Mr Birling and Gerald play a status game with a cigar vs cigarette as part of the after dinner activities typical from this period. In addition, Gerald smokes at a later point of the production, again as a way of playing status and his smoking is ridiculed by the production and the audience as we see him churlishly throw his cigarette in a puddle whilst being interrogated. Additionally, to the above, this iconic production uses references to film noir with smoking being a part of the picture created.
