あらすじ・解説

Widely regarded as one of J.B. Priestley's most successful works, An Inspector Calls combines drama and intrigue with an unforgiving verdict for society of the time. Sharp and unapologetic, it never fails to excite.

A BBC Radio 4 production of Priestley's classic thriller, starring Toby Jones and Frances Barber. The Birling family are spending a happy evening celebrating the engagement of Sheila Birling to Gerald Croft - a marriage that will result in the merging of two successful local businesses.

Yet, just when everything seems to be going so well, they receive a surprise visit from an Inspector Goole who is investigating the suicide of a young girl.

As the Inspector reveals more about the circumstances that led to the death of Eva Smith, each member of the family comes under the spotlight, and questions of guilt and responsibility are raised.... Toby Jones, David Calder, Frances Barber and Morven Christie are amongst the cast in this BBC Radio 4 production from 2010.

The Classic Radio Theatre range presents notable radio productions of much-loved plays by some of the most renowned playwrights, and starring some of our finest actors.

Not So Much Mystery

This dramatization of Priestley's play is not so much mystery as examination of society. There is a denouement, perhaps anticipated, but still analytical.

Exploring the nature of Time

Priestly was interested in the nature of time and wrote on this topic as well as social justice.

It was good to hear this Classic Radio Theatre production. Well done.

I suppose like Huxley, the writing expresses ideas and asks readers to think.

Such an amazing performance by all the actors

I found this to be so unbelievably riveting, entertaining, well-done, thought-provoking. I was sad when it was over. Don't delay - listen to it! Brilliant performance by the actors. Makes you feel like you're at the theatre watching it live.

A smug Inspector Galls

All but the Inspector in this recording, are wonderful to listen to. The recording is at times, let down by the incessantly smug monotone voice of the actor playing the Inspector. The Inspector should be a mystery man who with his charm and magnetism, manages to coerce information out of the otherwise reticent family. Not a judgemental one-dimensional bore. That being said, the other characters are played beautifully and it is all in all, an enjoyable romp.

Very disappointing.

If you want a ripping good detective story, this is not it. If, on the other hand, you enjoy an author beating you over the head with a moralistic two-by-four at the expense of an actual plot, you'll really enjoy this one.

I listened to half of it then gave up in disgust. The story seems to be merely a vehicle for the author's pontificating on the Evils Of Class in British society. Even a very good cast of performers was not enough to save it.

Needless to say, I will not be picking up anything by this author again.

GCSE text

Bought for my son who studied this as a GCSE text, I listened to this myself and enjoyed the dramatic interpretation. My mother also enjoyed it so I would suggest it is a classic which appeals to a range of listeners.

An atmospheric personal favourite

I love this spooky tale of a smug middle class family receiving some shocking news from a mysterious Police Inspector. I particularly like the way it harks back to a time when people were beginning to question themselves morally and there was the drive and energy to build a better future for everybody. Like this play, this is sadly all a thing of the past.

This has a terrific cast, including Frances Barbour playing the haughty and arrogant matriarch who really does have the wind blown up her skirts. If you enjoy this presentation I recommend you go on to see the film starring the late great Alastair Sim. To me, he really was the definitive Inspector.

Useful for GCSEs

I found it useful to listen to this a few times before my exam. I am yet to know if it has been effective revision. Wish me luck!

Great production

This is an excellent dramatised production, but be aware that it has been cut down a bit. However, despite this it still does a great job of conveying Priestley’s core messages so I can’t really give it anything other than 5 stars. Excellent performances!

Striking play. Convincing dramatisation.

Any additional comments?

I didn't know about this play until I got the reccomendation from Audible. A very enjoyable surprise, original and insightful.

A great reflection upon human ignorance

I read this book at school. fantastic insight into some people's lives, attitudes, stifling class structure in society and our inability to invest time, empathy and love for our fellow human beings.
