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.

- Friday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.
- Friday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m.
