An Inspector Calls Tickets
Sorry there are no shows for An Inspector Calls right now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Paulio158 from A stunning production An Inspector Calls has a special place in my heart, it was one of the first plays that I studied in depth at school and this fantastic production did not disappoint. The set is incredible, and is the perfect visual representation to match the themes of that are explored in the play. The cast are so strong and really deliver solid, fully formed characters. I'm so glad that they have brought Stephen Daldry's production back again, it meant that I had a chance to see it. It's so brilliantly unique, not how I pictured it in my head but so much more than I could have imagined.

Rated 1 out of 5 by fishystephen from A bad experience If you don't have a lot of time in London and you are visiting and just want to take in one or two shows then don't go and see this one. It was a hotch potch of confused direction and an ill conceived corruption of a classic play that just didn't work for me. Not only were there strange people wandering around the strange that appeared to have little or nothing to contribute to the story line but when the house started to explode I just had to start laughing! The curtain dropped a couple of times that normally suggests that there is about to be a prop change, but no, the scenery was the same. Couple this with the fact that some actors were clearly wearing 1950's costume and others 1940's costume in what was supposed to be a 1910 era with guns and bombs dropping as well then you hopefully get the feel that this is one to be avoided. Maybe a bit too arty for some or just bad. I leave it for you to decide but if it was art then it was over my head.
