The Grapes of Wrath
By John Steinbeck, adapted by Frank Galati
Directed by Norma Saldivar
This 1990 Tony award-winning adaptation of John Steinbeck’s iconic American novel recounts the powerfully and painfully familiar story of the Joad family’s forced migration to California after the dust bowl. Through great loss, unending hope, devastating disappointment, and remarkable resiliency, the narrative of Tom, Ma Joad, and Preacher Casy explores one family’s struggle to find home and hope during the Great Depression.
