Look back in anger

–  by John Osborne


Our next production is the classic tale of love across the class divide. LOOK BACK IN ANGER by John Osborne written in 1956 changed the face of British theatre forever. In the play Jimmy Porter looks back because he has so little incentive to look ahead. The characters are often cruel, but also vibrant. In Jimmy Porter’s boiling resentment at not being able to find himself in his own generation, he makes life impossible for those he most cherishes. England is not necessarily the country may people imagine it to be, as it might have been in some distant past. Many romanticize about its history and its heritage as Jimmy Porter does by looking back in anger. Its relevance and resonance today with England trying to define its identity as Britain hurtles towards Brexit is uncannily on the ball.
