Editorial Reviews

Spitting out insults and barbs and using words that cut like knives, British actor Simon Templeman takes to the theater and consumes the pivotal role of Jimmy Porter in this live production of John Osborne's 1956 critically acclaimed and groundbreaking examination of the emotional isolation of post-WWII England. As Jimmy's wife, Alison, Moira Quirk's level, nuanced upper-class intonation and accent are the perfect foil. Every time she sounds understanding or affected by her husband, it drives him to newer, more vicious tirades against all those around him. Don't be surprised about how this performance sticks with you. Uncompromising and startling theater at its best.

Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Porter barely ekes out a living running a candy stall by day and playing jazz trumpet by night. Although he usually takes his frustrations out on his emotionless wife, Jimmy's scathing tongue and self-loathing seems destined to destroy everything.Set in the UK at the dawn of the 60’s social unrest, this savage morality tale spawned the phrase “angry young man.”
