In April 1912, wealth mill-owner and politician Arthur Birling and his family are celebrating the engagement of their daughter Sheila to Gerald Croft, the son of a competitor. Arthur’s son Eric, has an obvious drinking problem. After dinner, Arthur speaks about the importance of self-reliance, his approaching knighthood, and about how "a man has to look after himself and his own."   Inspector Goole arrives, interrupting the evening and proceeds to make a number of assertions about the actions of various members of the family and implying that each had a role in a young woman’s death.
