Audience members will follow along with the actors, on foot, as they depict the Joad family’s flight from the Dust Bowl to California. While penning his Depression-era novel, Steinbeck wrote, "I want to put a tag of shame on the greedy bastards who are responsible for [the Great Depression]." He also famously said, "I've done my damnedest to rip a reader's nerves to rags." – Directed by Karen Lordi-Kirkham. Due to the lack of parking, all audience members will ride on a bus to the College Farm. Please arrive at the Anita Tuvin Schlechter parking lot on W. Louther Street at 4:45 p.m. Buses leave at 5 p.m. sharp. Please dress for the weather, bring a flashlight and a portable (bag) chair if desired to accommodate the walking tour.
