Experience the classic American novel by John Steinbeck that inspired a generation in an intimate setting along with live music inspired by Woody Guthrie’s dust-bowl-era folk ballads. The epic story of the Joad family’s migration across America, powered by a cast of twenty-four actors and musicians, seems more relevant than ever. Examining provocative social issues of environmental degradation and wage inequality, Steinbeck’s landscape is one of loss and of hope that stills speaks its message of resistance into our hearts across the divide of time.
Powerful, moving, and packed with live folk music, The Grapes of Wrath will have us humming a dust-bowl hymn long after the curtain falls.
