By showing these things side-by-side, the audience can work out that it's the things in the bad society (such as inequality and selfishness) which creates bad consequences (such as war and an anxious atmosphere).

The performance I am going to write about in this essay is “An Inspector Calls”, written by J.B. Priestley and directed by Stephen Daldry with the National Theatre. I saw this performance in November, 2015.
Both Priestley and Daldry wanted to show that bad society (such as inequality or irresponsibility between people) created bad consequences (such as war, or an unsettling atmosphere).
I will show how [directing] and [sound] both help communicate this message by either highlighting a bad society, or showing the bad consequences/atmosphere of this society. By showing these things side-by-side, the audience can work out that it's the things in the bad society which creates bad consequences.
In this essay I will argue that many unpleasant atmospheres are created in this performance. I will argue that these are mostly created through the performance-text referring to Film Noir. The imagery used in Film Noir in cinema is designed to unsettle the audience, so when they use it in An Inspector Calls it automatically creates an unsettling atmosphere and people also associate the imagery with unsettling events. I will also argue other atmospheres are created too, such as a sombre, angry and relieved atmosphere.
