Described as Agatha Christie meets “The Twilight Zone,” Priestley’s masterpiece holds the same powerful relevance as when it premiered. On the eve of an engagement and potential merger, a wealthy industrial family is visited by an Inspector. A young woman has died, and the Inspector’s unsparing and suspenseful interrogation leads him to observe that “We don’t live alone. We are members of one body.” Content warning: this play includes mentions of suicide and disproven views of mental health, guilt and blame.
