The Grapes of Wrath (Asolo Repertory Theatre)

By Frank Galati, from the novel by John Steinbeck

 Directed by Michael Donald Edwards

Frank Galati’s groundbreaking adaptation of Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel won the Tony Award for Best Play and has become a national theatrical treasure.

This quintessential American story of hope and survival follows the Joad family’s epic journey from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to the promised land of California in search of land, jobs and dignity.

A soaring affirmation of the goodness, strength and perseverance of the human spirit, The Grapes of Wrath provides the perfect canvas for an examination of a nation in search of itself.
