The MainStage season will conclude in May with An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley, directed by Genevieve Aichele. 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 about their possible roles in her undoing. First performed in 1945, this play forces us to look at our individual and societal responsibilities to our fellow human beings. “We don’t live alone,” says the mysterious Inspector, “We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other.” In an era of instant global communication and connection, these issues seem even more important than they were 75 years ago.
An Inspector Calls stars Drew DeSimone, Monique Foote, Emily Karel, Corrie Owens-Beauchesne, Jim Sears, Kathy Somssich, and Jimmy Stewart. Production team includes Christa Bellmare (Set Design), Zhana Morris (Costume Design) and Quentin Stockwell (Lighting Design).

The play is really fantastic. Very tight dialog, well acted and directed. I am so impressed at the breadth, variety and quality of everything that has been staged this year, and under horrendous challenges for sure. Well done to everyone involved!!! - Jennifer Kinsey

Why do you think this is a show audiences will enjoy right now?
"The script is excellent, the characters fascinating and the story is absolutely pertinent to our world today. There are even lines that echo eerily; they could be spoken in 2022 instead of 1912. “We don’t live alone,” says the mysterious Inspector, “We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other.” In an era of instant global communication and connection, these issues seem even more important than they were 75 years ago." Genevieve Aichele, Director
New Hampshire Theatre Project’s 2021-22 MainStage Season focuses on the season theme: Are We There Yet?
Watch the Directors' Season Preview NOW
The programming committee chose our theme of "Are we there yet?" for two reasons. First, the obvious post-pandemic issue for any theatre company continues to be "When will we get back to normal? And what is normal, really?" But the theme carries an important message connected to each MainStage production and along with the theme of "Are we there yet?" each production also explores the notion of "What exactly is there?" and "How will we know when we're there?"
