An Inspector Calls Life and Beth <p>by J.B. Priestley


"Public men, Mr Birling, have responsibilities as well as privileges"

England 1912. A mysterious suicide – how is the privileged Birling family connected to the dead working-class girl Eva Smith? Arthur Birling, a successful manufacturer, believes that if man minds his own business and takes care of his family no harm will come. Inspector Goole has other ideas and his persistent questioning tears down the seemingly perfect façade put on by the Birlings.


“An Inspector Calls” is a scathing critique of the hypocrisies of Edwardian English society. J.B. Priestley’s drama is today considered to be a classic in mid-20th century contemporary theatre. It combines elements of mystery and socially conscious family drama.



Performance dates are Wednesday, 15th February to Saturday, 18th February and Wednesday, 22nd February to Saturday, 25th February 2017 at Theater an der Marschnerstraße at 7.30pm (plus a matinée performance on Saturday, 18th February at 3.30pm).

Beth’s boozy sister-in-law, Connie, completes the family circle.
