The Times

Frank Galati’s ground-breaking adaptation of John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The Grapes of Wrath is an epic story of unity, community and survival against the odds.

It is the height of the Great Depression and the Joad family are desperate. Along with thousands of others, they leave the Oklahoma Dust Bowl travelling West to California in search of work and a new life. Investing everything in the journey, driven as much by fear as by hope, will California really be their Promised Land?

The Grapes of Wrath is a towering testimony to the integrity, strength and perseverance of the human spirit. The 20th century classic presents a road trip with real consequences, transcending the years to speak to us about the times we are living in now.

This vital new production from Abbey Wright (Nuffield Southampton Theatres’ Associate Director) features a community chorus with live music from Matt Regan (Greater Belfast).

“One of the greatest of the great American novels.” The Guardian 100 Best Novels of all time.

“A majestic adaptation… makes Steinbeck live for a new generation.” The New York Times.

Please note that this production contains full male and partial female nudity, some strong language, sudden loud noises, strobe lights and theatrical smoke.
