J.B. Priestley's An Inspector Calls Short Study Guide

On one level, An Inspector Calls is a whodunit. But much more importantly it is a morality play – one in which its author sets out to expose what he sees as the arrogance and indifference of Britain’s ruling class. Though written in 1944, it continues to fascinate critics and audiences alike, with one contemporary theatre director describing it as a “a call to arms”. So just how good a play is it, asks David Hughes in this short guide, and just how relevant is it to the world we live in today?
