England, 1912. The Birling family has just enjoyed a fine dinner in their upper-middle class home. Enter Inspector Goole, who brings word of a sudden death. The inspector proceeds to interrogate the family, discovering dark secrets and setting off a series of revelations. An Inspector Calls is classic English drawing-room mystery a la Agatha Christie, and more - a social critique that has made it a literary classic. "Whodunit?" becomes a question of what "it" was, how it was done, who it was done to, and just who Inspector Goole might be.
