Sixth Act Night at "An Inspector Calls"

Once again, The Sixth Act is pleased to support VaPA’s spring student production. Please join us for J.B. Priestly’s industrialism-era thriller AN INSPECTOR CALLS on Friday, April 17, at 7:30 PM, followed by a special talk-back with the student artists involved.                              

According to the BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE, “Priestley's understanding of human vanity and weakness is beautifully demonstrated and the thrill and hilarity of the revelations presents a very pure kind of pleasure. It also gets under the skin, as most people will realise that, like the characters, they too could be undone by seemingly innocent acts. In this way, Priestley has written a moral play, which is just as applicable to [2015] as it is to 1912 when it was set. It also interestingly explores the philosophical differences between moral absolutism and moral relativism with telling effect. As the playwright says, ‘there is a thin line between respectable citizens and criminals.’”

To purchase tickets, please go to: Also, please contact Maria Brandt if you’d like a copy of our Teaching Packet. We hope to see you and your students at the play!
