Look Back in Anger

Look Back in Anger is an existential tale that tries to play upon the sado-masochistic nature of relationships (à la Sartre). Jimmy Porter (Richard Thompson) is married to Alison (Kathryn Kelley). Jimmy is a passionate person. Alison is quite and mousey. Jimmy is frustrated over Alison's unwilingness to fight back and this leads to a temporary breakup while Alison is pregnant. Eventually they get back together after Alison loses her child and all of her pent-up emotions spill forth.

There was some good acting by Stevie Ray Dallimore and Michael Tolaydo as Cliff Lewis and Colonel Redfern respectively. The set was amazingly detailed and impressive. However, the play is a bit long-winded and unless you have a great attention span, I'd skip this one.
