Synopsis: In The End of Me Old Cigar, leading media figures get together for not such shocking reasons as might it first appear. A Sense of Detachment satirizes our heartless, profiteering society, while defending timeless human values. A Place Calling Itself Rome is a powerful reworking of Shakespeare's Coriolanus. The television play Jill and Jack is a comic gem that satirizes the conventions of its own genre, while also being a close study of sexual warfare.

About the Author: John Osborne was born in London in 1929. He worked as a journalist for a number of trade magazines before becoming an Assistant Stage Manager and actor with several repertory companies. Look Back in Anger (1956) has come to stand as a key text for modern British Drama, and prompted other successes with The Entertainer and Epitaph for George Dillon. He was the first of many writers to be 'discovered' by the Royal Court Theatre, and Look Back in Anger was the first of the Royal Court's plays to be internationally recognised. Osborne adapted Look Back in Anger and The Entertainer for film. He also wrote an Oscar winning screenplay adaptation of Henry Fielding's novel Tom Jones.
