From Stephen Daldry, Director of The Reader, the Academy Award-winning blockbuster The Hours and one of Britain’s best-loved films Billy Elliot - now an Olivier Award-winning musical - comes the magnificent West End & Broadway production of JB Priestley’s classic thriller.

When Inspector Goole arrives unexpectedly at the prosperous Birling family home, their peaceful dinner party is shattered by his investigations into the death of a young woman. His startling revelations shake the very foundations of their lives and challenge us all to examine our consciences.

Hailed as the theatrical event of our generation, winning more awards than any other play in history, this magnificent production has thrilled audiences across the world with its epic and wildly imaginative staging, raw emotion, evocative score, lashing rain and chilling suspense. Book now for an evening of compelling drama and theatricality.
