Take a step back in time to 1916 and experience the live performance of Thomas Wolfe’s novel “Look Homeward Angel.” This comedic-drama will focus on the last third of the novel which is set in Altamont, North Carolina.

Using sardonic humor and moments of sorrow, this play depicts the journey to adulthood for 17-year-old Eugene Gant.

“This story captures beautiful and terrifying real moments” Brandon Blaydes said, who portrays Eugene. “Students should come see the play because it’s so raw and real.”

Take a look at the behind the scenes clip from the department’s YouTube page.

The play will be approximately three hours long with one 15 minute intermission. Performances are scheduled for the following dates and times.

  • Friday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.

    I would love to have 2 posters of the play, if possible, for our TW Collection. Just let me know what to do to help facilitate this. We’d love to add you to the mix. I am the webmaster for the Thomas Wolfe Society (TWS): I also maintain the TWS Facebook page: where I have just posted information about this for TWS worldwide viewers. We are always very happy to see Wolfe’s work alive and well–being experienced and taken to heart. Thank you.
