Billy Liar was first presented in the Cambridge Theatre, London in September 1960.
The play came right at the start of the 1960s and was a leading part of the whole Theatre of Realism movement that started with Look Back in Anger , and was, with the Beatles and Carnaby Street, to become the Swinging Sixties Scene in London.
We have here a caterpillar, Billy, who knows he is a butterfly but, who in spite of himself, cannot break away from the comfort of the chrysalis.
