Matthew Rhys, Adam Driver, Charlotte Parry and Sarah Goldberg star in Roundabout Theatre's production of John Osborne's Look Back in Anger, directed by Sam Gold, at the Laura Pels Theatre in Manhattan, which began performances on Jan. 13.
Look Back in Anger, according to Roundabout, "is often regarded as a pivotal theatrical work of the last century…a shocking and vibrant drama about four people struggling to live together and love each other in 1950s England."
The company includes Adam Driver (Roundabout's Man and Boy and Mrs. Warren's Profession) as pal Cliff, Sarah Goldberg (London's Clybourne Park - Olivier nomination, Best Supporting Actress) as Allison, Matthew Rhys (TV's "Brothers & Sisters") as Allison's rough husband Jimmy and Charlotte Parry (Roundabout's The Importance of Being Earnest) as Allison's actress friend, Helena.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
