ONE of the most famous stories is bought to life by an Oscar nominated director.

Stephen Daldry’s touring production of An Inspector Calls sticks closely to JB Priestley’s classic thriller about an enigmatic inspector who visits a well to do family to investigate a young girl’s suicide.

You can tell straight away that this handled by a film director right from the cinematic opening featuring rain, wind and a cast of several extras. This is evident right throughout the story, particularly at its dramatic conclusion.

There are some fantastic performances in this show with Tom Mannion playing the enigmatic Inspector Goole while Kelly Hotten as the youngest daughter makes a lasting impression.

The story is one that still packs a very powerful punch and builds to a climax which still has a strong effect on audiences today.

An Inspector Calls is on at the Royal and Derngate in Northampton till Saturday. For tickets, call the box office on 01604 624811 or visit
