Look Homeward, Angel is an acclaimed 1957 stage play by the playwright Ketti Frings based on Thomas Wolfe's largely autobiographical novel of the same title. The story 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.

In 1958, Frings won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for the work and the production received 7 Tony Award nominations.
