Multi award-winning thriller An Inspector Calls is returning to Sheffield as part of a nationwide tour.

The National Theatre’s production of JB Priestley’s classic story is directed by triple Oscar-nominated Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader, The Hours).

Winner of 19 major international awards, the thriller visits Sheffield Lyceum Theatre from January 12 to 16.

Set before the First World War, the story begins when the mysterious Inspector Goole (played by Liam Brennan) calls unexpectedly on the prosperous Birling family home. The peaceful dinner party is destroyed by his investigations into the death of a young woman. His startling revelations not only shatter the very foundations of their lives but challenge us all to examine our consciences.
