  Look Back in Anger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Look Back in Anger (1956) is a John Osborne play and 1958 movie about a love triangle involving an intelligent but disaffected young man, his middle-class, impassive wife, her snooty best friend and an amiable Welsh lodger.
Look Back in Anger was a strongly autobiographical piece based on Osborne's unhappy marriage to Pamela Lane and their life in cramped accommodation in Derby.
It is also a phrase frequently used by Craig Charles on the UK Takeshi's Castle when announcing the 'Furious Flashback' ("and now we look back in anger...").

 BBC NEWS | Magazine | Look back at anger
"Anger management" is all the rage - not only for youngsters who fall foul of the law, but for stressed-out bosses who bark at their workers, tense school kids who display signs of bullying behaviour, and football managers who take their frustrations out on the "effing ref".
The British Association of Anger Management (BAAM), the UK's "centre of expertise" on anger and conflict management, has a team of consultants, counsellors and trainers who offer anger advice to the general public, children and teenagers, government bodies, corporations, the educational sector, personnel managers, and anyone else "dealing with their own or another's anger".
Anger seems to follow Brits even when they go on holidays abroad - 14% get stressed out about time off work, and apparently there was a 400% increase in incidents of "air rage" between 1997 and 2000.

Look Back in Anger came to exemplify a reaction to the affected drawing-room comedies of Noel Coward, Terrence Rattigan and others, which dominated the West End stage in the early 1950s.
Osborne and the writers who followed him were looking at the working class or the lower middle class, struggling with their existence in bedsits or terraces.
Eric Keown, reviewing Look Back in Anger in Punch magazine at the time, wrote that Osborne “draws liberally on the vocabulary of the intestines and laces his tirades with the steamier epithets of the tripe butcher”.

Set in a squalid one-bedroom flat in the Midlands, Look Back in Anger is essentially a vehicle for its lead.
Look Back in Anger inspired a new generation of playwrights, directors, novelists and even pop groups; Joe Orton, Lindsay Anderson, John Wain and the Beatles among them.
Its success was something of a curse to Osborne – after all, his reputation for changing the course of post-war theatre rests entirely on a masculine, aggressive, three-act play written in a month from a deckchair in Morecambe Bay, when he was doing a stint in a repertory theatre group.
