Look Homeward, Angel
October 29, 2016 at 7:30 PM - 10:00 PMFree – $7
Upper St. Clair High School’s Performing Arts Department will present the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Look Homeward, Angel” by Ketti Frings from the novel by Thomas Wolfe. Directed by Larry Cervi.
Ticket prices are $7 for adults, $5 for students, $1 for non-resident seniors and free for resident senior citizens. The box office opens at 6 p.m. for evening performances and at 1 p.m. for the matinee on Sunday. Please note that the performance contains content not suitable for younger audiences.
An authentic American classic, this powerful and vital play captures the sardonic humor and the grief, both private and universal, of Wolfe’s novel about a youth coming of age. Concentrating on the last third of Wolfe’s story, the play vividly portrays Eugene Gant, his mother, who is obsessed by her material holdings and who maintains barriers against the love of her family, his father, a stonecutter imprisoned by his failures, and the brother who never breaks away.
