Frank Galati’s groundbreaking stage adaptation of John Steinbeck’s masterpiece of American literature. The powerful story of the Joad family and their flight from the dust bowl of Oklahoma as they travel west in search of the American dream. Desperately proud, but reduced to poverty, the Joads head west for California, hoping to find a better life. Led by the indomitable Ma Joad, determined to keep the family together, and the young Tom, an ex-convict who grows weary with the intolerance that they encounter, the family deals with terrible deprivation before reaching the hope they long for. And yet, despite the suffering that it depicts, the play becomes a soaring and deeply moving affirmation of the power of the human spirit, of family, community, endurance, sacrifice, and of the essential goodness and strength that—then as now—reside in the hearts and minds of men and women. Winner of the Tony Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play. August 10 – September 2. Thurs – Sat 8 PM. Sun 3 PM.
