March 12–April 19
by Frank Galati, from the novel by John Steinbeck | Directed by Michael Donald Edwards
Frank Galati’s groundbreaking adaptation of Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel won the Tony Award for Best Play and has become a national treasure. Infused with live music, this wonderfully theatrical production tells the story of a nation through the eyes of the Joad family, driven from the dust bowl of Oklahoma toward the promised land of California in search of a new home, jobs and dignity. Part naturalistic epic, part road trip and part inspirational gospel, The Grapes of Wrath is a soaring affirmation of the goodness, strength and perseverance of the human spirit.
