AN INSPECTOR CALLS

Synopsis: 

 

The play opens with the engagement party of Sheila Birling and Gerald Croft (son of a prosperous businessman) in the imaginary city of Brumley. Into these celebrations enters Inspector Goole, who announces the unpleasant suicide of a young woman named Eva Smith. The connection of Eva Smith to the Birling family dates back two years ago when she worked in the Birling factory and was dismissed there for being one of the ringleaders agitating for a pay rise. 

 

Through the Inspector's questions it is revealed that all the Birlings bear some responsibility as to her death.....
