The Grapes of Wrath Fall 2017

Prepare to experience this gripping story in a truly immersive way, as Frank Galati’s 1988 Tony Award-winning adaptation of this Pulitzer Prize-winning 1939 classic by John Steinbeck comes to the College Farm. Audience members will follow along with the actors, on foot and in wagons, 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.
