  • Priestly wrote the play for an audience just coming out of the horrors of the second World War, yet he set his play in 191, two years before World War: this brings us to a consideration of Priestly's use of time as an element of his plays
  • At the end of the play we are left with a sense that the events are going to start all over again
  • We wonder whether things will be different and how the characters will behave
  • One 'time' theory suggests that when we die we re-enter our life and live it all over again, and only by doing this better we can
