A drama adapted by Frank Galati
From the Novel by John Steinbeck
Directed by Ron Law
The powerful story of the Joad family's trek from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to the promise of a new life in California. This groundbreaking adaptation conveys the loneliness of the open road with the assistance of an evocative score. Its themes — the importance of family, community, endurance and sacrifice — are as powerful today as they were when Steinbeck penned the book. A powerful and deeply affecting stage version of one of the masterpieces of American literature, The Grapes of Wrath won a Tony Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

Stay after the show on November 10th for Theatre Charlotte's new Bar Back series sponsored by Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. This is not your traditional "talkback" where actors line up on stage and audience members fire questions at them. Instead, it is a casual event where you have the opportunity to mingle in the lobby with members of the cast and production team as well as other audience members. Grab an OMB beer and track down your favorite actor, or the director, or another audience member and talk about the show! Have tickets on another night but still want to attend the Bar Back? Come on out! The Bar Back will begin around 10:30pm on Friday, November 10th. Please bring your ticket or email confirmation to prove you've seen the show.
