THEATER IN ENGLISCHER SPRACHE: On a summer evening in 1912 in Brumley, an English manufacturing town, the wealthy factory owner and politician Arthur Birling and his wife Sybil are celebrating the engagement of their daughter Sheila to a rival industrialist’s son, Gerald Croft. The Birlings’ son Eric, whose drinking problem the family discreetly ignores, is also at the family gathering. After dinner Arthur lectures them on the importance of self-reliance and looking after your own interests and talks of the peaceful and prosperous future that awaits the couple. The seemingly cosy evening is interrupted by the arrival of a man calling himself Inspector Goole, who says he is investigating the gruesome suicide of a young woman. Who is to blame for her death?
