'An Inspector Calls', a famous 20th century play written by J.B Priestley deploys Brumley, North Midlands as his setting in the year 1912, two years prior to World War 1, which serves as the backdrop of industrialisation, represented by Mr. Birling and the Crofts.
Both the characters are prosperous businessmen who highlight the values of Capitalism and the Bourgeois Society which revolves around the issues related to money, bigger profits and larger gains, social aspirations, arrogance, complacency, social superiority, ego, relationships, social hierarchy etc.
What lies buried beneath worldly success? Does Prosperity sacrifice something in the bargain? These are some of the thought provoking issues dealt within the Play and in the Notes provided for #GCSE, #IGCSE and #IB Students.
