HART opens its season with ‘Look Homeward Angel’

The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will open its 2012 season on April 27 with “Look Homeward Angel,” a Pulitzer Prize winning drama based on Thomas Wolfe’s novel.

HART will perform the play at 7:30 p.m., April 27-28 and May 3-5. Sunday matinees will start at 3 p.m., April 29 and May 6.

Ketti Frings wrote “Look Homeward Angel,” which tells the story of the Gant family, living in the fictional Altamont, and the Dixieland Boarding House, operated by a domineering matriarch who used her children as free labor. A “parade of pimps, prostitutes and ne’er-do-wells” populated the rambling barn of a house.

The play and book are a thinly veiled autobiography by Wolfe, a 20th century writer and Asheville native. The play opened on Broadway at the Barrymore Theater in 1957.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $8 for students/teachers. A special $5 discount tickets for students and teachers is also available on for Thursdays and Sundays.

The box office will open two weeks before each show to the general public this season.
