Stephen Daldry's AN INSPECTOR CALLS at The Wallis, an Exclusive West Coast Engagement
Production is a Modern Reimagining Hailed as the Theatrical Event of its Generation and Winner of Multiple Olivier and Tony Awards
Stephen Daldry ("The Crown," Billy Elliot, The Inheritance) directs his National Theatre of Great Britain’s landmark production of J.B. Priestley’s classic thriller An Inspector Calls, hailed as the theatrical event of its generation and winner of an unprecedented number of awards, including three Olivier’s, four Tony’s and seven Drama Desk Awards, with an exclusive West Coast engagement at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts from Tuesday, January 22 to Sunday, February 10, 2019. Featuring an iconic grand-scale set, Daldry's masterpiece was first staged in London in 1992, went on to award-winning runs in the West End, Broadway and elsewhere, including Los Angeles at the Ahmanson Theatre in 1996, and has been seen by over 4 million theatergoers worldwide. Currently touring Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston, An Inspector Calls has been described as, "an episode of ‘The Twilight Zone’ wrapped in an Agatha Christie mystery," and "a Broadway Phenomenon!" (The Washington Post). In London, critics called it "superbly tense…breathtaking, daring and faultless execution" (Daily Telegraph), "visually astonishing" (Daily Express) and "a riveting examination of conscience and class." (Sunday Express).
Daldry faithfully and expertly remounts An Inspector Calls as a modern reimagining of the original 1945 script, set in 1912, about Inspector Goole and his unexpected arrival at the prosperous Birling family home, shattering their peaceful dinner party by his investigations into the death of a young woman. His startling revelations shake the very foundations of their lives and challenge audiences to question their own consciences.
Cast members include Liam Brennan (Inspector Goole), Christine Kavanagh (Sybil Birling), Jeff Harmer (Arthur Birling), Andrew Macklin (Gerald Croft), Lianne Harvey (Sheila Birling), Hamish Riddle (Eric Birling) and Diana Payne-Myers (Edna).
