Summary
In 1956, everything changed. Britain and France occupied Suez, and the Soviet Union invaded Hungary. Nikita Khrushchev's 'secret speech' exposed the crimes of Stalin. Suddenly the left found itself homeless, as the Communist Party became uninhabitable. The Royal Court Theatre unveiled John Osborne's 'Look Back in Anger', exploding the upper-middle-class complacency in which British theatre had cloaked itself. This book takes us through this most momentous of years, week by week and sometimes hour by hour
