“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

The American dust bowl. The height of the Great Depression. One family begins an epic journey, driven as much by fear as by hope. Route 66 to California, the Promised Land. In search of work. A new life.

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 company with live music from Matt Regan (Greater Belfast).
