AN INSPECTOR CALLS

From 2 Mar 2023

Wild Rice @ Funan

In a comfortable middle-class home, a family sits down to a celebratory dinner. But their evening is cut short by the unexpected arrival of an Inspector. He brings news of the tragic death of a young woman.

As the Inspector investigates, tensions escalate – threatening to shatter the very foundations on which entire lives and identities have been built. What crime has been committed here? Who is guilty? And who isn’t?

Written with startling prescience by J.B. Priestley in 1945, An Inspector Calls is more relevant than ever today. A riveting clash of murder and morality, class and conscience, Priestley’s classic play asks its characters – and today’s audiences – to take a good, hard look at the troubling disparities in the world brought about by power, privilege and poverty.

Join Wild Rice for this thrilling new production of An Inspector Calls, which has been daringly reimagined by director Glen Goei and his top-notch creative team of Singapore’s finest theatre-makers. What more is there to this family than meets the eye?

Duration: approximately 2 hours (without intermission)
