John Osborne's groundbreaking 1956 play about a love triangle involving an intelligent but disaffected young man (Jimmy Porter), his upper-middle-class, impassive wife (Alison), and her haughty best friend (Helena Charles).

Cliff, an amiable Welsh lodger, attempts to keep the peace. While legend has it that those first audiences gasped at the sight of an ironing board on a London stage the press called the author an "angry young man" and that Osbourne, "didn't [so much] contribute to British theatre, he set off a landmine and blew most of it up."

Look Back in Anger was a strongly autobiographical piece which set British theatre in a whole new direction.
