Director: John Brentley
An Inspector Calls is a play written by English dramatist J. B. Priestley, first performed in September 1945 in the Soviet Union and in 1946 in the UK. It is one of Priestley’s best known works for the stage, and is considered to be one of the classics of mid-20th century English theatre. The play takes place on a single night in April 1912, focusing on the prosperous upper middle-class Birling family, who live in a comfortable home in the fictional town of Brumley, “an industrial city in the north Midlands”. The family is visited by a man calling himself Inspector Goole, who questions the family about the suicide of a young working-class woman, Eva Smith (also known as Daisy Renton). Long considered part of the repertory of classic “drawing room” theatre, the play has also been hailed as a scathing criticism of the hypocrisies of Victorian and Edwardian English society.
Doors open at 18.45 hours and the programme will start at 19:00 hours. We use the premises of the Nerja Bridge Club – entrance is through the blue doors at the top of Calle Castilla Perez 1, Nerja. We are between Salon de Juegos and Supermarket.(See map) Do come along and share an enjoyable evening with us. Contact via email: admin @ the nerja players .com (no spaces)

Swapping “bamboo” furniture? : Accidentally, I ended up with 3 similar but different pieces of ” bamboo” furniture. Anyone in the same position who wants to swap one (or both) of the 2 left ones on the foto? I prefer the style to the right, but will be happy if at least the other two could be more similar.
