Adapted from Thomas Wolfe's controversial chronicle of his Asheville youth, Look Homeward Angel marks the tumultuous coming-of-age of Eugene Gant.

“...Directed by John Mossman with a high exuberance that moves easily from the tragic to the comic, but occasionally a bit shrill, the play is framed as a memoir by Wolfe’s alter ego, Eugene Gant (Nick Horst, a young actor of enormous charm and warmth).”
— Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times
“...Look Homeward” is comprised of solid if unspectacular storytelling punctuated by several sublime scenes of luminous emotional truth. The cast is similarly effective. Among the large, dozen-plus member ensemble, there is a wide range of acting chops on display.”
— Catey Sullivan, Examiner
