Steinbeck’s story of the Joad family and their tragic flight from the Oklahoma Dust Bowl to California in search of the promised land is powerfully realised in Frank Galati’s stage adaptation. Thrown off their land and lured by promises of unlimited work and prosperity, the Joads pack their worldly possessions onto a ramshackle truck and head west, only to find their hopes and dreams shattered in the face of oppression and persecution. ‘Not since Nicholas Nickleby has there been so classic an example of a great national book becoming an equally great national theatrical event.’ Herald Tribune.
