Priestly calls in Lismore
The Lismore Theatre Companys next production is JB Priestlys 1945 classic An Inspector Calls.
Its a thriller that takes place in the dining room of well-heeled industrialist Arthur Birling during an engagement party. Set in 1910, its still relevant to our own time as it examines how people can unknowingly affect each others lives with their individual self-interest set against the values of caring and community. The family learns more than they want to know as the mysterious inspector questions them about the death of a girl they barely know.
An Inspector Calls will play a three-week season and opens next Thursday, March 15 and runs until Saturday, March 31, at the groovy Rochdale Theatre in Goonellabah.
Evening performances begin at 8pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a matinee on Saturday, March 24 at 2pm.
Tickets are $15/12 and available at Caddies Bean Shop in Carrington Street, Lismore or at the door.
