An Inspector Calls Staff Pick

Price: $10-$20
English playwright J.B. Priestley went after the hypocrisy of the comfortable middle class in his drama An Inspector Calls. On the night Arthur Birling should be celebrating the engagement of his daughter Sheila, who is marrying the son of his business rival, he is instead answering a series of probing questions delivered by the dogged Inspector Goole. Goole believes that all of the people at Sheila's engagement party are somehow responsible for the suicide of Eva Smith, a young working-class girl. The more Goole probes, the more proof he finds of both families' cruelty and callousness. Act Inc presents An Inspector Calls at 8 p.m. Friday (June 17 and 24), 2 p.m. Saturday (June 18 and 25) and 2 p.m. Sunday (June 26) at Lindenwood University's J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts (2300 West Clay Street; www.actincstl.com). Tickets are $10 to $20.
