About This Show

In the small town of Altamont, North Carolina, in 1916, matriarch Eliza Gant makes the Dixieland Boarding House the center of her life. Her husband, W.O., carves marble tombstones, engages in displays of public drunkenness and takes solace in a tender friendship with the local Madame. When two of their sons, Eugene and Ben, confront life and love simultaneously, the entire family is forced to face the truth of their lives in one of the most explosive finales in American theater. Winner of the 1958 Pulitzer Prize, Look Homeward, Angel is Thomas Wolfe’s fictional autobiography and a true American Classic.

Written by Ketti Frigs, from the novel by Thomas Wolfe; Nick Dorr directs.
