Spitting out insults and barbs and using words that cut like knives, British actor Simon Templeman takes to the theater and consumes the pivotal role of Jimmy Porter in this live production of John Osborne's 1956 critically acclaimed and groundbreaking examination of the emotional isolation of post-WWII England. As Jimmy's wife, Alison, Moira Quirk's level, nuanced upper-class intonation and accent are the perfect foil. Every time she sounds understanding or affected by her husband, it drives him to newer, more vicious tirades against all those around him. Don't be surprised about how this performance sticks with you. Uncompromising and startling theater at its best. B.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
