Programme Note #1: An Inspector Calls

AL wrote: “I am once again privileged to direct a Priestley play for WICK . An Inspector Calls is very different from When We Are Married, my last Priestley play, but I consider it another masterpiece.

The importance of community, common interests and common responsibility has been the theme of much of Priestley’s work. The Birling family is typical of its time and environment, but what of the Inspector? Is he really a Police Inspector? Is he a practical joker or is he a being from a mysterious source, possibly the voice of conscience in us all? We leave you to decide as the play unfolds.

Whatever your conclusion we hope you will have an entertaining and thought provoking evening.”
