David Tennant To Star In Look Back In Anger For BBC Radio 4
David Tennant and Sir Ian McKellen will be starring in a new production of Look Back In Anger for BBC Radio 4 this April. The play will be directed by Richard Wilson.
Although at first disliked by critics, the play is now considered the masterpiece that sparked the Angry Young Men movement - and now, almost 60 years to the day - Radio 4 will broadcast the latest version. David and Sir Ian will be joined by Nancy Carroll as Alison, Daniel Evans as Cliff and Claire Price as Helena. Clive Brill is the producer on behalf of Brill Productions.
In addition to the play, in an episode of Archive On 4, David Tennant looks back at the controversy sparked by the play's initial production, and its genesis in Osborne's personal life. Produced by Jo Wheeler for Bite Media.
