Look Back in Anger
By John Osborne
Directed by Helen Parry
Blackhand Productions bring this ground breaking play by John Osborne to The Martin Harris Centre in Manchester.
England, late 1950's. Jimmy Porter, working class and university educated, lives in a one-room attic flat with Alison, his upper-middle class wife, and their gentle-tempered friend Cliff. Their already claustrophobic relationship is further unravelled by the arrival of Alison's childhood friend Helena...
'Look Back in Anger' encapsulates the disaffection of post-war British youth, a revolt against political and intellectual inertia, a questioning of middle-class values and the frustration of having a university education and nowhere to go.
Please note there is smoking on stage throughout the production.
