Watch: “Doing theatre in Malta is like having a family”

During the sixth episode of Newsbook.com.mt‘s online cultural programme ‘Take a Bow‘, Coryse Borg interviews Edward Thorpe who is playing the part of patriarch Arthur Birling in MADC’s production of JB Priestley’s famous thriller An Inspector Calls.

Centred around the prosperous upper-middle-class Birling family, the play takes place on a single night in April 1912 in the fictional town of Brumley. When Inspector Goole visits to question the family about the suicide of a working-class woman, it becomes clear that all is not what it first appears.

MADC’s production of this renowned play will feature a stellar local cast of performers including Edward Thorpe as Arthur Birling, Isabel Warrington as Sybil Birling, Roberta Cefai as Sheila Birling, Edward Caruana Galizia as Eric Birling, Gianni Selvaggi as Gerald Croft, Samantha Gauci as Edna and John Marinelli as Inspector Goole.

Directing the cast will be Michael Mangion.
