LOOK BACK IN ANGER BY JOHN OSBORNE Play in Three Acts

CAST In Order of Appearance JIMMY PORTER CLIFF LEWIS ALISON PORTER HELENA CHARLES COLONEL REDFERN CONTENTS The action throughout takes place in the Porters' one-room, flat in the Midlands TIME: The present. ACT I

ACT II Scene l. Scene 2. ACT III Scene 1. Scene 2. ACT I The Porters' one-room flat in a large Midland town. Early evening. April.

Beside them, and between them, is a jungle of newspapers and weeklies. Several months later. A few minutes later. Two weeks later. The following evening.
