An inspector calls:Letter to director

Extracts from this document...


An inspector calls - Letter to director Dear Mr. Campbell (Director), An inspector calls Was written in 1948 but set in 1912 just before the climax of war and the victory of the trade unions. The play is basically about an inspector that thoroughly interrogates a family riddled with secrets and lies. He exposes them and unfolds the terrible story about Eva - Smith and the birlings. The scene I have chosen you to direct is "Eric's Confession". In this scene Eric slowly opens up and miserably confesses to the "part" he played in the lead up to Eva's death. This scene is important to the play because it reveals how much the Birlings actually know about Eric and how little they know about the type of person he is. ...read more.

I would like The inspector to be slowly pacing back and fourth trying to rinse every single bit of detail out of Eric. Eric should be not making eye contact with nobody and looking at the floor ashamed and slightly disturbed. Furthermore, I would like Mrs.B to be sitting down on a chair in utter disgust and dis-belief. Eric should be speaking in a soft croaky voice and the inspector should be speaking in a calm cool tone. ...read more.

I would like the tension between the inspector and Birling Last throughout the whole scene as it represents the everlasting conflict between capitalists and socialists that existed when the play was wrote. The main reason That JBP wrote the play was to reveal was capitalists was really like, they seemed rich and posh but revealed to be Dirty, lying inhumaine people, and it made people feel sorry for socialists and realise that they were the good people. ?? ?? ?? ??
