THE GRAPES OF WRATH. A masterpiece of American literature, Frank Galati’s
groundbreaking adaptation is the powerful story of the Joad family and their flight
from the dust bowl of Oklahoma. Desperately proud but reduced to poverty by the
loss of their farm, the Joads pile their few possessions on a battered old truck
and head west for California, hoping to find a better life. Led by the indomitable
Ma Joad, who is determined to keep the family together at any cost, and by the
volatile young Tom Joad, an ex-convict who grows increasingly impatient with the
intolerance and exploitation that they encounter, the Joads must deal with terrible
deprivation before reaching their destination—where their waning hopes are
dealt a final blow by the stark realities of the Great Depression. And yet, despite
the anguish and suffering that it depicts, the play becomes in the final essence a
soaring and deeply moving affirmation of the indomitability 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.
