Look Back in Anger
Look Back in Anger was the third play put on by the English Stage Company at the Royal Court. At a time when British theatre was dominated by â€˜safeâ€™, commercial plays, it shocked with its political energy and blunt portrayal of post-war concerns. Now widely considered to mark the beginning of modern drama, it went on to spark a new writing movement throughout the 1950s and beyond. Look Back in Anger transferred to Broadway in 1957 and was made into a film in 1958, directed by Tony Richardson.
