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