Can anyone think of any original/different ideas that are good to put across in inspector calls?

Hmmm, from what I can remember I know there was quite a great stress concerning 'the individual' and Priestley seemed to be mocking the upper class.

Mr & Mrs Birling seemed to be living in there own little bubble where class and status held much more value than the life of the working class... ie Eva Smith...

The were much more indulged in their rank in society and social class to be able to sympathise with the 'death' of Eva Smith.

The only 2 people who seem to fully take responsibility of their actions are Sheila and her brother.... Mr & Mrs Birling seem to revert back to their old ways...

Mr. B is also perceived as pretty stupid when he proclaims something like "the titanic will never sink", as we know it was set in 1912 (I think), the audience in the present are aware of Mr. B's ignorance and stupidity, it portrays him as a rather silly man...

(I hope that has helped... It's as much as I can remember... It's been ages since I laid eyes on the play, hope I got the names correct... and also double-check the dates in case I'm wrong...)

Good luck!
