SUNY Plattsburgh Theatre Program Presents "An Inspector Calls"

The SUNY Plattsburgh Theatre Department presents J.B. Priestley's "An Inspector Calls," Wednesday, November 5th through Saturday, November 8th at 8:00 p.m. in the Hartman Theatre of the Myers Fine Arts Building.

A Dark Study In Morality Set In WWI England

Written by J.B. Priestly (1894-1984) during the final years of the Second World War, "An Inspector Calls" is a brilliantly compelling and haunting thriller.

A perennial favorite in Britain, Plattsburgh State professor, and director, Dr. John Shout describes the play this way:

"'An Inspector Calls' is a kind of thriller, but of a particularly disturbing sort. The Birling family seems ordinary enough as they enjoy a family celebration on a March evening in 1912: but that is before a menacing police inspector begins to delve into their family secrets. It would seem that they are all guilty - but of precisely what crime? And just who is this inspector? The play looks realistic, but as it unwinds, it becomes increasingly problematic. And we have added a few surrealistic touches of our own to tease the brain a bit further."

Thursday's performance will include an informal chat session immediately following the show during which audience members can ask the cast and director any questions they'd like.
