Rockville Little Theatre brings a fresh perspective to J.B. Priestly’s “An Inspector Calls” for two weekends, starting tomorrow – January 24th at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre in Rockville, MD.
The Birling family is celebrating Sheila’s engagement to Gerald Croft, when a mysterious inspector comes to call. It becomes clear that they are implicated in a young woman’s death. What follows is an exciting “whodunnit” full of plot twists that will keep you guessing right up until the surprise ending.
Director Laurie T. Freed has reinterpreted this classic mystery play in a minimalist, Expressionistic style that highlights the tension and dysfunction of the family. David Levin’s minimal set changes and morphs as the tension builds, and the lighting by Peter Caress creates a true noir feel that heightens the intensity of the play’s climax.
