Booking has now opened for The Royal National Theatre's 1992 production of J.B. Priestly's play An Inspector Calls which opens at the Playhouse Theatre on Sept. 27. Stephen Daldry's reworking of Priestley's classic thriller returns to the West End on Sept. 20 after a brief summer break. Written in 1946, the drama takes us into the comfortable and complacent world of the Birling family who are disturbed during a celebration by the arrival of a mysterious police inspector. The production has won a total of 19 awards in London and New York, and clocked up a run of almost six years at the Garrick before closing there earlier this year.
Stephen Daldry's most recent theatre production was Carol Churchill's Far Away which had a successful run at The Royal Court and the Albery earlier this year. He has proved to be a force in modern British cinema as well as theatre through directing the film "Billy Elliot" last year.
