Bridge Drama return to the Jerome Hynes Theatre at the National Opera House this month with their production of 'An Inspector Calls,' by JB Priestley later this month.

Set in 1912, this classic and ever-popular play resonates strongly with modern audiences, with its hard-hitting observations on the issues of gender and class.

When Inspector Goole arrives at the prosperous Birling family home, their peaceful dinner party is shattered by his investigations into the death of a young woman.

His startling revelations shake the very foundations of their lives which will never be the same again.

This is a 'must-see' for those with an appetite for thrilling suspense however, this time-honoured masterpiece also has a profound message which will touch any moral conscience.

Cast: Mr Birling - George Percival, Mrs Birling - Jacqui Whelan, Sheila - Mairead Ryan, Eric - Brian Sheridan, Gerald Croft - Adrian Power and Inspector Goole - Paul Tobin. Directed by Pat Whelan

Performances will take place on January 26, 27 & 28 and February 16, 17 & 26, 27.
