There aren’t many connections between Soviet Russia and Bovingdon – but JB Priestley can provide a link.
The first performances of the gruff dramatist’s classic An Inspector Calls were actually in Moscow in 1945, with a London premiere the following year.
And the morality tale in which members of a northern magnate’s household all have to examine their consciences after the death of a young girl is the next production for the Bovingdon Players.
The curtain goes up at 7.45pm on Thursday next week, with further performances on Friday and Saturday. Tickets for the first night are a bargain £6 – book online at www.bovingdonplayers.com or call 07905 512258.
