Described as "a landmark production of a historic play" (British Theatre Guide) and "The best young play of its decade" by the legendary theatre critic Kenneth Tynan, The Renaissance Theatre Company's highly acclaimed adaptation of John Osborne's landmark play Look Back in Anger will be available to own on 30th January 2012 from Network.
Noted as a work which brought in the generation of 'Angry Young Men', which revolutionised theatre, Look Back in Anger had a profound effect on stage drama that it is still felt to this day. This version dramatised for Thames Television was directed by national treasure Dame Judi Dench.
A story of disparate characters locked into the raw misery of a self-destructive marriage driven towards crisis point, Look Back in Anger features astonishing performances from both its celebrated leads. Branagh's turn as the mercurial central character, a disappointed working-class graduate railing furiously against bourgeois respectability, was hailed by Osborne as 'the best Jimmy Porter ever', while Thompson brings enormous sympathy and depth to the role of the long-suffering Alison - the seeming embodiment of all that Jimmy abhors.
