An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley

Michael O'Connor of Shakedown Films is currently directing the Hamburg Players production of  J.B. Priestley's classic "An Inspector Calls":


"Public men, Mr Birling, have responsibilities as well as privileges"

England 1912. A mysterious suicide – how is the privileged Birling family connected to the dead working-class girl Eva Smith? Arthur Birling, a successful manufacturer, believes that if man minds his own business and takes care of his family no harm will come. Inspector Goole has other ideas and his persistent questioning tears down the seemingly perfect façade put on by the Birlings.


“An Inspector Calls” is a scathing critique of the hypocrisies of Edwardian English society. J.B. Priestley’s drama is today considered to be a classic in mid-20th century contemporary theatre. It combines elements of mystery and socially conscious family drama.


See the play this week at:

Theater an der Marschnerstraße, Hamburg, 7.30pm



Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes

We're always on the lookout for ideas and inspiration. And sometimes we find them in unexpected places - like this graffiti and flower arrangement at a corner in the middle of the city centre in Hamburg.
