2019 SEASON 3
Directed by Drew Mason
Jimmy Porter plays trumpet badly. He browbeats his flatmate, terrorises his wife, and is not above sleeping with her best friend-who loathes Jimmy almost as much as he loathes himself. Yet this working class Hamlet, the original "Angry Young Man", is one of the most mesmerising characters ever to burst onto a stage; a malevolently vital, volcanically. articulate internal exile in the dreary, dreaming Siberia of postwar England. A realistic portrayal of toxic masculinity and the impacts that irate tirades have on the ones we "love". First produced in 1956, Look Back in Anger launched a revolution in English theatre: stark realism to contrast the previous decades of escapism. Savagely, sadly and always impolitely, it compels audiences to acknowledge the hidden currents of rottenness and rage in what used to be called "the good life".
