The play defies a short definition without giving away the drama. A young woman is dead, and an inspector calls on a wealthy family who may have known her. Winner of the Tony Award for the best revival several years ago, this is a tense, dramatic, and exciting show.
Well-to-do industrialist industrialist Arthur Birling and his family are celebrating the engagement of daughter Sheila. These rather ostentatious celebrations are well and truly spoilt by the arrival of the strange Inspector Goole who is investigating an alleged suicide of a girl theyve all wronged. The unfolding of events draws the whole family into a bizarre and sordid tale of meanness, pride, spite and snobbery. But will they see their faults? And just who is this character, Inspector Goole?
