On 2 April 1956 the English Stage Company was born. It started with a season of modern plays and its first hit was a new work by a young actor John Osborne , Look Back in Anger. This was followed by a long line of new and exciting playwrights, Arnold Wesker , John Arden , David Storey , Christopher Hampton , Edward Bond. Twenty years later their plays are performed all over the world and are set books in many of our schools. Many happy returns, with Alan Bates, Albert Finney, Helen Mirren, and many more.
