CHATHAM, NJ - On November 20–21, the Chatham High School Theatre Department will present the authentic American play Look Homeward, Angel.  Performances are on Friday, Nov. 20 and Saturday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Based on Thomas Wolfe’s novel of the same title, Look Homeward, Angel is a vivid story showcasing love in all its wrenching psychological forms. Set in North Carolina in 1916, the play chronicles 17-year-old Eugene Gant’s struggle to escape his overbearing mother and alcoholic father in hopes of discovering the world beyond the repressive boarding house in which he was raised.  

Look Homeward, Angel is winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and N.Y. Critics Award and is one of the most honored and universally admired plays in theatrical history.

Tickets are $10 or $7 with a Chatham student ID. $10 tickets can be purchased in advance online at starting Monday, Nov. 9. Tickets will also be sold at the door before each performance and at CHS in the main lobby from Monday, Nov. 16-Friday, Nov. 20 from 10:45-11:30 a.m.  For more ticket information, email:
