England, late 1950's. Jimmy Porter, working class and university educated, lives in a one-room attic flat with Alison, his upper-middle class wife, and their gentle-tempered friend Cliff. Their already claustrophobic relationship is further unravelled by the arrival of Alison's childhood friend Helena ...

'Look Back in Anger' encapsulates the disaffection of post-war British youth, a revolt against political and intellectual inertia, a questioning of middle-class values and the frustration of having a university education and nowhere to go.
