Look Back In Anger, the classic play written by John Osborne in 1956, is a shocking love triangle that deals with the extraordinary passions in everyday life.

Jimmy Porter is an angry young man who should have it all but he is intent on destroying himself and everyone he loves. His wife Alison suffers his furies on a daily basis and the arrival of her best friend can only inflame Jimmy more.

Starring Bill Ward (Coronation Street’s Charlie Stubbs) as Jimmy, Nia Gwynne as Alison, Laura Howard (Midsomer Murder’s Cully) as Helena, Rob Storr as Cliff and Robert East as the Colonel.
