About this show

Clout in the Mug Productions is proud to present Look Back in Anger, John Osborne's brilliant, searing portrayal of the savagery of the human heart. Called the "most vivid play of the decade" by the New York Times, an epochal event in the history of 20th Century playwriting, the influence of Osborne's 1956 masterwork on generations of authors and viewers alike cannot be underestimated, continuing to resonate down into our own caustic and bewildered age. Following the fortunes of passionate, embittered Jimmy Porter, his long-suffering wife, and the best friend bearing quiet witness to their domestic havoc, the arrival of a mysterious guest sets events in motion which remind us that the most brutal truths and tender sufferings exist closer to home than we'd like to admit. Out of all this brutality and tenderness, this mocking irony and genuine love, there exists the one play from which the world came to understand that you can't move forward until you first . . . Look Back in Anger.
