Look Back In Anger 50th anniversary

In 1956, John Osborne’s Look Back In Anger play was almost revolutionary – part of a new movement in realism that would lead to a new wave of gritty British cinema in the late 50s and early 60s.

50 years on, it might not have the impact of its theatre debut, but it’s still a hard hitting piece of drama. To celebrate a half century of Look Back In Anger, the play returns at the Theatre Royal in Bath, directed by esteemed director Peter Gill.

The cast features Richard Coyle as the angry trumpet-playing Jimmy Porter, while Rachael Stirling plays the long-suffering wife. The production runs from August 16th to September 2nd.
