A classic mystery to chill your bones

Grand Opera House, Belfast

Thursday-Saturday, February 7-11, Various times

Stephen Daldry's acclaimed production of J B Priestley's classic thriller was hailed as the theatrical event of a generation when it first opened in 2000.

It has thrilled audiences throughout the world - including here - with its imaginative staging, raw emotion, evocative score, lashing rain and chilling suspense.

The production plays with time as well as space, flicking between past and present, as the Birling family are forced to face up to the truth about the death of a local woman.

Now, a decade on, Inspector Goole calls at the Grand Opera House once again. The staging is as fabulous as ever - the action takes place within a doll's house on stilts, perched above a blackened, Blitz-blasted street, in front of a crowd of 1940s witnesses.

In today's world Mr Birling might be a banker rather than an industrialist. Daldry and Priestly insist on bringing him to justice before his world collapses around him.

Don't miss this breathtaking production of what has turned out to be a timeless and classic play.
