The Birling family are holding a dinner party to celebrate the engagement of Sheila to Gerald Croft, the son and heir of Mr Birling's rival in business. Although there is a happy, light-hearted atmosphere, there are a few signs that not everything is perfect.


When the ladies leave the men to their port, Mr Birling has a 'man to man' chat with Gerald and Eric, and advises that a man needs to look after himself and his own family and not worry about the wider community. As he is telling them this, the door bell rings. Inspector Goole enters, an impressive, serious man whom none of them has heard of.
