John Osborne's classic, searing post-war drama caused a sensation when it was published in 1956. In the figure of Jimmy Porter, Osborne had unleashed the 'angry young man', attacking the establishment, its rapidly devolving values and its stifling grip on contemporary society. The hostility and resentment of a generation exploded onto the English stage and British theatre was never the same again. In 1989, the Renaissance Theatre Company staged "Look Back in Anger" in London's West End in a celebrated version directed by Judi Dench and starring Kenneth Branagh in a "blistering central performance" (The Guardian) as Jimmy Porter and Emma Thompson as Alison, his wife and the target of so much of Jimmy's ferocious class-centric bitterness.
