AUDITIONS: An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley

September 6, 2014, 1-5 pm

WHAT: Theatre UAF's fall mainstage production is An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley. The action of the play occurs in an English industrial city, where a young girl commits suicide and an eminently respectable British family is subject to a routine inquiry in connection with the death. An inspector calls to interrogate the family, and during the course of his questioning, all members of the group are implicated lightly or deeply in the girl’s undoing.
