Look Back in Anger is one of the few works of drama that are indisputably central to British culture in general, and its name is one of the most well-known in postwar cultural history. Its premiere in 1956 sparked off the first 'new wave' of kitchen-sink drama and the cultural phenomenon of the Angry Young Man. The plays anti-hero, Jimmy Porter, became the spokesman of a generation. Osbornes play is a key milestone in 'new writing' for British theatre, and the Royal Court - which produced the play, has since become one of the most important new writing theatres in the UK.
