Coming Soon: Look Back in Anger

John Osborne’s post-war classic Look Back in Anger will be brought to life by a cast of five this April.

Directed by Michael Reffold (Assistant Director for Garden Suburb Theatre’s acclaimed open-air production of Our Country’s Good in July 2019), Look Back in Anger explores the breakdown of a marriage between original “angry young man” Jimmy Porter and his wife Alison, who Jimmy resents for being of a higher social class than him. Their relatively stable life in a small, dingy apartment with Jimmy’s friend Cliff is disrupted by the arrival of Helena, a long-time friend of Alison’s who seems to have her own agenda and turns their existence on its head. 

With a number of intense stand-offs, characters with depth, and a host of psychological avenues to explore, this dark 50s drama is sure to be explosive. 

Look Back in Anger will be GST’s entry into the Barnet & District Drama Festival Awards (the Barnies) for 2020.

Auditions will take place from 7-10 pm on Sunday 2nd February at the Free Church Hall. Audition notice available soon.
