John Whiting's power as a playwright is indisputable, yet in his lifetime he did not receive much critical acclaim or popular success. He died at the age of forty-six, a disillusioned man, despite the success of The Devils. In his plays he dealt with deeper issues in a way that was at odds with the kind of theatre fashionable in the Fifties. Working outside of the establishment, his work remains vibrant and fresh today.
