J.B. Priestley’s 1912 play An Inspector Calls is a much-celebrated stageplay, and has also been a staple of the national curriculum in the UK for quite some time.
The drama focuses on the well-to-do Birling family who are grilled by a mysterious inspector after a working class local girl takes her own life. The BBC have filmed a new version of the story, with David Thewlis as the inspector and Ken Stott as head of the family Arthur Birling.
