Due to popular demand after returning to the West End, Stephen Daldry’s multi award-winning production of JB Priestley’s An Inspector Calls has been extended until 25th March 2017.
Clive Francis (The Crown, Netflix), Barbara Marten (Casualty) and Liam Brennan (Diary of a Madman – winner of a Stage Edinburgh Award) are joined on stage by Matthew Douglas, Carmela Corbett, Hamish Riddle and Diana Payne-Myers – still treading the boards aged 88.
Producer Iain Gillie of PW Productions comments, 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.
This production marks the 70th anniversary of the first UK staging of the play and the 25th anniversary of its first appearance at the National Theatre.
Since 1992, Daldry’s production of An Inspector Calls has won a total of 19 major awards, including four Tony Awards and three Olivier Awards, and has played to more than 4 million theatergoers worldwide. An Inspector Calls is the most internationally-lauded production in the National Theatre’s history.
JB Priestley’s brilliantly constructed masterpiece powerfully dramatises the dangers of casual capitalism’s cruelty, complacency and hypocrisy. Stephen Daldry’s epic production highlights the play’s enduring relevance.
Featuring Ian MacNeil’s ingenious designs, music by Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love) and atmospheric lighting by Rick Fisher, this landmark production is guaranteed to have old fans rushing back and new theatregoers being swept away into the mysterious world of Inspector Goole.
