Look Back in Anger Overview

Look Back in Anger is a play written in 1956 by 26-year-old British playwright John Osborne.
The drama follows the story of an unhappily married couple and how their world changes when the wife’s friend comes for a visit. At the time the play was written, theater in Great Britain only depicted the restful lives of the upper-middle class. With this play Osborne breaks that convention and brings working class characters and language to the stage. Look Back in Anger opened the floodgates to a more realistic depiction of people and events in British theater, and continues to remain an important work today.
