RADIO PREMIERE: Look Back In Anger & Tennant Looks Back At Osborne Air Today


To celebrate the 60th anniversary of John Osborne’s classic play, Look Back In Anger, Richard Wilson directs a new radio dramatisation with David Tennant as Jimmy Porter which will air from 2.30pm this afternoon on BBC Radio 4.
David previously played the role on stage back in 2005 and won the Critics Award For Theatre in Scotland for his performance.

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 will be joined by Sir Ian McKellen as Colonel, Nancy Carroll as Alison, Daniel Evans as Cliff and Claire Price as Helena.

In addition to the play, an hour long documentary, Tennant Looks Back At Osborne, looks back at the controversy sparked by the play's initial production, and its genesis in Osborne's personal life.
This will air this evening from 8.00pm
