Work titles should be italicized, but not boldfaced
'''''An Inspector Calls''''' is a British play by J. B. Priestley that was first performed in 1945. It’s often called one of Priestley’s best works – if not, ''the'' best play he’s made – possibly because it comments on (as well as references) social issues that are still alive in Britain today. Maybe that’s why it’s a [[SchoolStudyMedia set text]] in many [[BritishEducationSystem schools in Britain]] – usually for the [[UsefulNotes/{{GCSEs}} in England and Wales]], so expect a large dose of EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory.

* SpotOfTea: In the Daldry production, which (since 1992) is the one generally staged, the Inspector is seen interacting silently with various characters outside of the family. This includes politely accepting a cup of tea off Edna. In the original play, although it's not clear whether he's [[TheTeetotaller a teetotaller]], he emphatically refuses Birling's offer of a drink.

Set in the year 1912, the play follows the story of a middle-class family called the Birlings, who are celebrating the engagement of daughter Sheila to a much-older upper-class Gerald Croft, secretly hoping that the marriage will make them even richer. The party is then interrupted by an Inspector, who has been sent by the precinct to question them about the possible reasons behind the suicide of a working-class woman named Eva Smith. Each of the guests at the dinner-table are questioned, despite some protests of annoyance, but the family soon find out that they all have had dealings with the woman, and learn that there’s more to their seemingly-perfect world.
