ANOTHER INSPECTOR CALLS by Emma Northcott

£3.50

A mysterious police officer calls late one night and challenges a wealthy family to explore their part in a young Polish woman’s demise. This short thriller takes a well known story and gives it a modern twist. Immigration, zero-hours contracts, drug use and county lines are amongst some of the modern day troubles to be tackled in this snappy version of the classic play.
