John Osborne's realist cornerstone profiles the sorrows, despondency, and anger of the working class. Written in 1956, the unexpected hit the stage in the previously undepicted 20-30-year-olds of England, who did not participate in World War II and who found its aftermath lacking in promise. Encapsulating an entire generation who viewed revered and established institutions with disdain, it even coined their popular description as "angry young men," landing it on many lists of the best plays of the 20th century.

This production is a no-holds-barred staging of this intense kitchen sink drama, starring Joey Folsom as its protagonist, Jimmy Porter. By focusing on Jimmy's relationships with his wife and their friends, Osborne examines the tinderbox of a life that is created by a sense of hopelessness for what the future holds.
