Faber’s celebrated reputation for contemporary drama was seeded in 1956, a year that saw the premiere of John Osborne’s theatrical bombshell Look Back in Anger and the publication of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. Tom Stoppard joined the ranks in the sixties, and in the decades that followed many other brilliant dramatists have found their home here, including Alan Ayckbourn, Alan Bennett, Brian Friel, David Hare, Frank McGuinness and Timberlake Wertenbaker. The legacy continues with an exciting list of younger playwrights.
