Tickets now available for Ohio State Lima’s An Inspector Calls

Tickets are now available for The Ohio State University at Lima’s production of An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley. Performances are at 8 p.m., Thurs., May 20; Fri., May 21; Sat., May 22; and 2 p.m., Sun., May 23, in the Martha W. Farmer Theatre for the Performing Arts.

An Inspector Calls is a classic play of the mid-20th century English theatre written by J.B. Priestley. Over the course of an evening, the mysterious Inspector Goole interrogates the wealthy Birling family about their responsibility for the death of a young working class factory girl. When it was originally staged in the 1940s, it was considered a critique of the hypocrisies of the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
