Look Back in Anger

By John Osborne

Britain, somewhere in the Midlands. 1950s. The post war generation.

Frustrated Jimmy Porter is fighting the world around him and attacking the people who love him. His love and rage combine to form a disconcerting mixture of a man.

The kitchen sink drama Look Back in Anger presents a manifestation of disagreement with the stagnation of everyday life. Disagreements around indifference and habit, tradition and inequality. Jimmy balances on the extreme edges of passion and hatred, emotions that fuel everyone but ultimately destroys him and everyone in his sphere. Osborne's seminal play finds a medicine for this quiescence through the manipulation of feelings, constant change of moods and brutal honesty.
