Osborne, John James (1929–95) English dramatist whose play Look Back in Anger (1956) established his reputation as one of the ‘Angry Young Men’ of British theatre. His other successes included The Entertainer (1957) and Luther (1961) but later works such as The Hotel in Amsterdam (1968) and Watch It Come Down (1976) provoked critical hostility.
