"The first move I ever made, after the cradle, was to crawl for the door." - North Carolina. 1916.

Eugene Gant is a sensitive teenager, living in a country town with his large, crazy family. His home is the "Dixieland" boarding house, run by his domineering mother, Eliza, who is forever buying real estate, and more attentive to her bizarre assortment of boarders than in her own family. She constantly battles with Eugene's boozy, poetry-spouting father, W. O. Gant—a sculptor and monumental mason.

Of his many siblings, Eugene most idolises his older brother Ben—a journalist who sees the danger of entrapment by the family and urges the boy to get away. Caught in the possessive cross-fire between his romantic father and pragmatic mother Eugene dreams of escaping to become a writer. But his dream becomes complicated by the arrival of his first love.

Will he ever get away? Will he recover? Can he learn to understand and forgive?

An American Classic
Independent Theatre has a proud reputation for adapting great works of American fiction to the stage, among them The Grapes of Wrath, The Great Gatsby, East of Eden, Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird.

One of the world's great coming-of-age stories—Thomas Wolfe's sprawling family saga is based on his own complex family life, and alive with vivid characters, poetic beauty and rich, quirky comedy.
Ketti Frings' brilliant adaptation for the acclaimed 1957 Broadway production, won her the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Family, adolescence, first love, heartbreak, escape—this timeless story speaks to us all.
