The Grapes Of Wrath
24 May – 10 June 2017
The Oklahoma landscape is barren, crops turn to dust and farmers are forced from their land.
The Joad family are driven by desperation and by hope. Facing environmental and economic disaster, they join thousands of families to undertake an epic journey; travelling west on Route 66 to the Promised Land, California, in search of work and a new life.
Based on the classic novel by John Steinbeck this is a timely story of survival, equality and justice. This urgent new production speaks fiercely to the current moment.
