Look Homeward Angel

by Ketti Frings

based on a novel by Thomas Wolfe

October 4, 5, 11, 12, 13, 1991

Plank Road School

Look Homeward, Angel traces the coming of age of Eugene Gant in the small town of Altamont, North Carolina. Eliza, his mother, is a woman who likes to make "Deals"—in business and with people. With the proverbial iron hand in the velvet glove and almost equal concern, she runs "Dixieland," her seedy boarding house, an alcoholic husband, a daughter and two sons.
