Look Back in Anger by John Osborne


Mission Theatre - Poster - Look Back In Anger - Final Version.jpg

16th - 20th January at 7.30pm with  a 2pm matinee on Saturday 20th

I learnt at an early age what it was to be angry. And I can never forget it.’ (Act I) 

Jimmy Porter is angry; angry with life, angry with his friends, angry with his wife and angry with the world. Indulged, talented, intelligent and loved Jimmy is none the less dissatisfied and frustrated. As he lashes out in a kaleidoscopic two hours of theatre audiences are appalled and dazzled in equal measure by his mercurial character. 

In Look Back in Anger Osborne presents post-war youth as it really is to have done this at all would be a signal achievement; to have done it in a first play is a minor miracle... I doubt if I could love anyone who did not wish to see ‘Look Back in Anger' (Kenneth, Observer, May 1956) 

Don’t miss this chance to see the play that broke the theatrical mould last century and from so which so many favourite playwrights have since drawn their inspiration.
