The Grapes of Wrath

The Grapes of Wrath

Driven from their home, the Joad family make the monumental trek westward to California, joining thousands of other migrants in search of land, jobs and dignity. Seduced by the prospect of a new life they invest everything they have in the journey. Their hopes rise and crumble as they struggle to survive the crossing - California may not be the promised land after all.

Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck’s epic American novel about the Great Depression is given new life by this 30-strong community cast, the perfect canvas for a large ensemble, in a timely production about human resilience in the face of economic exploitation.
