This exciting new interpretation from University of Oxford student company Such is Life Productions offers you the chance to experience this classic drama up close and explores the play’s relevance to the society we live in sixty years after it was written.
'Why don't we have a little game? Let’s pretend that we're human, and that we're actually alive.' Set in fifties Britain, Look Back in Anger, the first ever 'Kitchen Sink Drama' explores the turmoil of human relationships and the burning desire to feel in an increasingly numb society through depicting the tumultuous marriage of Jimmy and Alison. Their marriage symbolises many of the effects of class division and sexual inequality in Britain.
With Osborne's excoriating prose, his play considers the fragility of love in a disaffected society.
