An Inspector Calls, by J. B. Priestley
An Inspector Calls is a play by J. B. Priestley that explores the social responsibility of the Birling
family, who are involved in the death of a young woman named Eva Smith. The play is set in 1912,
but it was written and performed in 1945-46, after World War II. The play has three acts and is
structured as a detective story. Frequently set for GCSE, it is now firmly in the canon of popular
theatre. Could it be the next local production put on at the Theatre?
A Message from the organiser Chris Gill
We have now established a tradition of reading a play once a month at the Marine Theatre, which is kindly providing the venue free to support community drama. We will take a summer break in August, but we are pleased to present details of the next two events in July and September.
Please remember to bring with you a paper or screen copy of the script if you wish to read. We are not able to provide copies.
We have already gathered a group of regular attenders, but we are keen to encourage anyone interested in drama to participate, so please come whether this is your first or seventh time. If you have any ideas about readings of future plays, please contact Chris Gill through the Marine Theatre.
