“Look Back in Anger”

Jimmy Porter is a confrontational young man who wants to incite strong feelings from others at any cost. As he relentlessly harangues his beleaguered wife and best mate, the three orbit one another in a dance of intimacy, hope and doubt. John Osborne’s play is a classic portrait of the dreams and the disillusionment of Londoners in the mid-1950s. The broadcast includes a conversation with Dan Rebellato, author of “1956 and All That: The Making of Modern British Drama.”
