The action of the play occurs in an English industrial city, where a young girl commits suicide and an eminently respectable British family is subject to a routine inquiry in connection with the death. An inspector calls to interrogate the family, and during the course of his questioning, all members of the group are implicated lightly or deeply in the girl's undoing. The family, closely knit and friendly at the beginning of the evening, is shown up as selfish, self-centered or cowardly, its good humor turning to acid, and good fellowship to dislike, before the evening is over.

Role # 1 - Arthur Birling Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The patriarch of the Birling family. Arthur is a "rather portentous" man "in his fifties" who owns a profitable manufacturing company. His business success allows the Birlings to live in upper-middle-class comfort. Birling believes that capitalist principles of individual willpower and the protection of company profits are good for business and good for society.

Role # 2 - Sybil Birling Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The matriarch of the Birling family. Sybil is described in the play's performance notes as "cold." Though she is pleased her daughter Sheila is engaged to be married, she tends to ignore any potential discord in the family. Sybil serves on a charitable committee in the town, and busies herself with social events befitting a woman whose husband is a business success. She protects what she perceives to be the family's good image and standing in the community.

Daughter of Arthur and Sybil. Sheila, "in her early twenties," is engaged to Gerald and believes, at the start of the play, that her future lies bright before her.

Role # 5 - Gerald Croft Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Fiancé to Sheila, and son of another prominent manufacturing family. Gerald is from a more socially-elevated family, and Arthur worries that Gerald's parents believe he is making a "poor match" in marrying Sheila.
