Gate Theatre presents LOOK BACK IN ANGER by John Osborne 1 February – 24 March

The Gate Theatre presents

Look Back In Anger by John Osborne

Award-winning Irish theatre director, Annabelle Comyn, takes a fresh look at the explosive words of playwright, John Osborne, in the Gate Theatre’s new production of his 1950’s play, Look Back in Anger – a play which launched his career to international fame.

This blistering new staging of Osborne’s 1950s international hit play, tackles themes of sex, class, religion, politics, the media, and the sense of a country stifled by an official establishment culture.

The play focuses on the life and marital struggles of the play’s main character, Jimmy Porter, and wife Alison, while addressing the rise of the Right Wing.

This new production brings this ‘groundbreaking for its time’ play bang up-to-date, while also reminding us of how life has changed for the better in recent times.
