“Every time Stephen Daldry’s great production of this JB Priestley play returns, its power and pertinence feel all the more striking.”
The Independent, Nov 2016
“I never tire of watching it. That’s partly because it looks astounding, but it’s also because it builds on the crusading provocation of Priestley’s 1944 original – an Edwardian thriller with a socialist purpose, tinged with a supernatural spin. An Inspector Calls always speaks to the changing political moment.”
Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph Nov 10 2016
“Stephen Daldry’s spectacularly successful remount of JB Priestley has returned to the West End… it remains a remarkable evening.”
