This play about the life and work of a second-rate music hall comic (brilliantly created by Sir Laurence Olivier in the original production) and staged only eleven months after the opening of Look Back in Anger, secured John Osborne’s reputation and has become a classic of 20th century drama.

The Entertainer was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in April 1957.
