An Inspector Calls Overview

An Inspector Calls, a play written by British writer J.B. Priestley in the early 1900’s, is equal parts thriller and social commentary. A wealthy industrialist and the members of his extended family are visited by a police inspector investigating the death of a working-class young woman That death that, according to the inspector, was triggered to one degree or another by the actions of the family. As it builds to its double-twist surprise ending, the narrative explores themes related to the destructive qualities of capitalism, truth vs. delusion, and the need for compassion in human relationships.
