JOHN OSBORNE'S LOOK BACK IN ANGER

March 18 – April 9

A realist kitchen sink drama, focusing on the relationship of protagonist, Jimmy Porter, his wife Alison and their friends. Jimmy, an intelligent and educated man with working class roots, and a fascination with playing jazz trumpet, stands outside the border of the middle class with Alison, of upper middle-class upbringing, who married down. Embittered and disdainful, Jimmy’s dissatisfaction and disillusionment with life takes a dark turn into wanting others to feel the pains of the disenfranchised, with Alison often the target of his need to make others feel small in order to create his imagined rightful station. Her undisclosed pregnancy only making matters worse. 

John Osborne’s realist cornerstone profiles the sorrows, despondency, and anger of the working class. Post WWII, this English work encapsulated an entire generation of 20-30-year-olds who viewed revered and established institutions with disdain, and coined their popular description as “angry young men”, landing it on many lists of the best plays of the 20th century. Using the entry point of the relationship between a married couple, and their friends, the play examines the tinderbox of a life that is created by a sense of hopelessness for what the future holds.
