This play is based on Thomas Wolfe’s largely autobiographical novel of the same title, which was published in 1929. Set in the town of Altamont, North Carolina, Look Homeward, Angel is a richly layered, period coming-of-age story, based on the early life and history of Wolfe.
The novel was adapted into a Broadway play in the 1950s by Ketti Frings, receiving six Tony Award nominations and Frings winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1958.
George Toles, a professor of Literature and Film at the University of Manitoba, directs the production.
