A heart-wrenching full-cast adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel by John Steinbeck, starring Jeffrey Donovan and Shirley Knight 

Set during the Great Depression, The Grapes of Wrath tells the powerful story of the Joad family’s trek from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to the promise of a new life in California. But what they find threatens to rip apart their lives, and sever the ties that bind them together. Frank Galati’s play finds its timeless heart in the generous spirit of the common man.

This is an LA Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Shirley Knight, Jeffrey Donovan, Emily Bergl, Michael Buie, Daniel Chacón, Maurice Chasse, Shannon Cochran, Trista Delamere, Francis Guinan, Charlie Matthes, Rod McLachlan, Robert Pescovitz, Joel Rafael, Stephen Ramsey, Nick Sadler, Andy Taylor, Floyd Knowles, Todd Waring, Fredd Wayne, Michael Weston, and Kate Williamson, with live music performed by the Joel Rafael Band. Adapted by Frank Galati. Directed by Richard Masur and recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.

About the Author

John Steinbeck (1902–1968) remains one of the quintessential writers of American literature. Born in Salinas, California, Steinbeck attended Stanford University before working at a series of mostly blue-collar jobs and embarking on his literary career. Profoundly committed to social progress, he used his writing to raise issues of labor exploitation and the plight of the common man, penning some of the greatest American novels of the twentieth century and winning such prestigious awards as the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He received the Nobel Prize in 1962, “for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humor and keen social perception.” He wrote more than twenty-five novels during his lifetime.
