An Inspector Calls

Ideally suited for Years 10 or 11
Duration: 55/60 minutes presentation followed by a 30 minute workshop
Audience number: approximately 150

Venue: ideally school hall with the audience on four sides

This characteristically innovative and interactive performance/workshop will engage students fully with Priestley’s characters, themes and context while reinforcing key quotations. Ideal for consolidation of the text and exam preparation. As they bring vividly to life key scenes in the play, focusing on the personal moments of crisis for the individual members of the Birling family and Gerald Croft, the company’s experienced actors/facilitators will actively engage your students fully in the dramatic experience. Led by the character of the Inspector and members of the Box Clever team, the students will also be encouraged to explore the ways in which Priestley expertly utilises a range of dramatic techniques to highlight key themes, create characters and fully engage his audience.



For sales to schools only.

Great questions probing the students about context and how it might relate today. All very engaging and professional.

English teacher, Howard of Effingham School

I enjoyed it when the actors talked directly to the audience and involved them because it helps us to understand the play and have a direct relationship with it.

Year 11, Hedingham School

It was really useful to explore the ideas and responsibilities of the characters and to share opinions with other people. It was awesome and really helpful to me and my learning.

Year 11, Oldbury Wells School


Excellent for revising the main characters’ motives and key themes of the text. Very slick, fast-moving and excellent content
