This staging of The Grapes of Wrath, the story of tenant farmers fleeing the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression in pursuit of jobs, dignity and a future, is inspired by this 75th anniversary year since the publication of John Steinbeck’s epic novel.
Granada Artist-in-Residence Miles Anderson directs with a mixture of original music and traditional American folk songs, and sets and lighting by internationally renowned designer Thomas J. Munn.
