Looking back at Look Back In Anger

Fifty years after its opening night, The Independent looks back at John Osborne's Look Back In Anger, with Osborne's own reflections and a selection of the first night critics.
Kenneth Tynan in 'The Observer', 13 May 1956: 'Look Back in Anger' presents post-war youth as it really is, with special emphasis on the non-U intelligentsia, who live in bedsitters and divide the Sunday papers into two groups, 'posh' and 'wet'. To have done this at all would be a significant achievement; to have done it in a first play is a minor miracle.
