Producers have announced that Clive Francis (The Crown, Netflix), Barbara Marten (Casualty) and Liam Brennan (Diary of a Madman – winner of a Stage Edinburgh Award) will lead a dynamic cast in the much-anticipated return of Stephen Daldry’s multi award-winning production of JB Priestley’s An Inspector Calls at the Playhouse Theatre, London.
Clive Francis comments, An Inspector Calls is one of the great classic plays of the 20th century. It premiered in London’s west end the year I was born and has now been seen by a whole new generation of theatregoers thanks to Stephen Daldry’s brilliant and masterly production. An Inspector Calls is considered one of Priestley’s greatest works, and has been subject to a variety of interesting interpretations, none more so than this historic National Theatre revival which I’m delighted to be part of.
They will be joined on stage by Matthew Douglas, Carmela Corbett, Hamish Riddle and Diana Payne-Myers – still treading the boards aged 88.
This production marks the 70th anniversary of the first UK staging of the play and the 25th anniversary of its first appearance at the National Theatre.
