In the era of instant global communication and connection, the issues raised in this 1945 classic seem more important than ever. What is our responsibility to our fellow humans on this planet?
An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley is directed by Genevieve Aichele. A young girl commits suicide and an eminently respectable British family is subject to a routine inquiry in connection with the death. An inspector calls to interrogate the family about their possible roles in her undoing. First performed in 1945, this play forces us to look at our individual and societal responsibilities to our fellow human beings. “We don’t live alone,” says the mysterious Inspector, “We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other.”
