-An Inspector Calls-

Daisy Renton

The most mysterious character in the play. Inspector Goole begins by telling Mr Birling that a girl named Eva Smith has killed herself, other characters claim to know different girls of different names, including “Daisy Renton” and even “Mrs Birling” who, the Inspector states are all the same person. However, the Inspector only shows Eva/Daisy’s photograph to one person at a time, causing Gerald to wonder, just before the play’s end, whether the Inspector has tricked the family into combining incidents involving separate girls into one.
