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.
"…majestic…leaves one feeling that the generosity of spirit he saw in a
brutal country is not so much lost as waiting once more to be found."
- NY Times.
"A thrilling theatrical achievement that gets its power from the still sharp
relevance of its human message…" - NY Post.
"A lesson in history, stagecraft, and truth that we cannot afford
not to learn." - NY Magazine
